COFFEEVILLE – Aldermen want the Yalobusha General Hospital to transfer ownership of the old ambulance service building on Front Street to the Town.
Research shows that the property belongs to the town, but the building belongs to the hospital, Town Attorney Larry Maxey told Board members during their regular meeting Oct. 5.
Among other actions at the first of the month meeting, the Board of Aldermen:
•Approved travel expenses for Town Clerk Brenda Gibson to attend Municipal Clerks training in Jackson Oct. 21 and 22.
• Discussed a violation of the dog ordinance.
• Tabled action on the purchase of a new police vehicle.
Mayor Mack Burns said that Coffeeville would not be receiving a Rural Development grant this year for the purchase of the vehicle. He said funds were tight and suggested that the Town wait until after the first of the year.
He added that if something happened to one of the current vehicles, the town could act accordingly.
• Authorized the Town to apply for a Capitol Access Program (CAP) loan from the State for water system improvements.
Present at the meeting were Mayor Burns, Aldermen Michael Ayers, Joe Bourn, George Miller, Bryan McCullough, Eva Longstreet, Town Clerk Gibson, Attorney Maxey and Police Chief Mark Martin. The Coffeeville Town Board meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m. in Town Hall.
