This is also the National Day of Prayer and a prayer service will be held on the courthouse lawn at 12:00 noon. Mayor Lay also encouraged the prayer of our citizens for our country and the men and women serving in the armed forces.

Attorney Betz presented one ordinance and one resolution for consideration.

Ordinance #963 - To amend Ordinance Number 947 to fix the time and place at which the regular meetings of the Board of Mayor and Commissioners shall be held. Motion to approve on second and final reading was made by Commissioner Gowen, with a second by Commissioner Goolsby. Motion passed unanimously.

Resolution # 2003-1-5 - To name the street located inside Bobby Brewer Park as John Pillow Drive. Motion to approve the resolution was made by Commissioner Pulley, with a second by Commissioner Goolsby. Motion passed unanimously.

City Administrator David Huseman asked Sanitation Supervisor Gary Hyde to address the Commission on the brush pit and grinder operation located at the County Balefield site. Mr. Hyde thanked the city and county government for their support of the operation. On the first day of operation over 785 tons of yard waste was ground and removed from our community. This joint effort benefits the county in helping meet their mandate to reduce the solid waste stream by at least 25% through recycling, and reduces the time spent by the city in transporting yard waste to Wildcat Ridge, thus increasing our productivity in picking up the waste.

With no further business to come before the Board, a motion was made by Commissioner Gowen to adjourn; a second was made by Commissioner Pulley. Motion passed. Meeting adjourned.
