Coun­cil dis­cussed the stor­age of fish­ing gear by a lo­cal fish­er­man in the park­ing lot of a pop­u­lar walk­ing trail in town.

It was de­cided in a re­cent meet­ing coun­cil will send no­tice to the fish­er­man to re­move the gear from the lot.

A com­plaint was re­ceived from a busi­ness owner in the town of For­tune re­gard­ing out­side pur­chases the town made for a roof­ing pro­ject com­pleted un­der a job cre­ation pro­ject. The

Coun­cil sug­gested they fol­low up with the ap­pro­pri­ate of­fi­cials to see if quotes have to be han­dled in the same man­ner as ten­ders.

Coun­cil is look­ing into the need for a bus shel­ter on Had­dock Road. A shel­ter was there in the past but it has since been re­moved. If they find a need for the shel­ter coun­cil will iden­tify a lo­ca­tion for it.

A tar­get date for the open­ing of the For­tune Arena was set for Oct. 22.
