Daleville Council looking to fill multiple board positions
By Jan Murray email@example.com
The Daleville City Council announced multiple board openings at last week’s regularly scheduled council meeting. Altogether, there are 12 openings on six different boards.Interested citizens who would like to volunteer for positions should contact City Clerk Angelia Filmore at city hall. The Planning Commission has one opening; the Board of Adjustments has two openings plus one alternate position; the Industrial Development Board has two openings; the City Tree Board has two openings; the Library Board has two openings (representatives from Level Plains and Clayhatchee); and the Redevelopment Authority has two spots.All positions are non-paid. Everyone except the Level Plains and Clayhatchee positions must be registered voters within the city of Daleville, said Filmore.At the meeting, the council also responded to an offer from the 1-13 Aviation Regiment to clean up Glenn Grantham Park so it could be reopened. The park is located on Fort Rucker. In the past, council members said, there had been issues, including criminal activity at the park and if it were reopened it would be very difficult to police and take care because it is so far from the city. Members voted to send a letter of thank you to the Army unit but not to allow the work nor reopen the park.In other business, the council approved payment of $55,622.16 in bills; gave the go-ahead on a $1,792.50 per quarter contract with Air Conditioning Associates to service all city HVAC units; and approved a request from the Association of the U.S. Army (AUSA) to use the Daleville Convention Center for a reception on Dec. 1.Chamber of Commerce President Stephen Drown also told the council that one of two grand marshal’s for the chamber-sponsored Christmas parade would be Lt. Col. Paul E. Berg, commander of the 1st Battalion, 223rd Aviation Regiment at Cairns Field in Daleville. The parade and Christmas tree lighting will be held Friday afternoon, Dec. 4 at 5:30 p.m. with the city tree lighting immediately following in front of Daleville High School.
