Gravette council enjoys brief meeting
GRAVETTE — The regular city council meeting held Thursday, Oct. 25, at city hall was very brief. Attended by four of the six council members, mayor Kurt Maddox, city clerk Mike von Ree and city attorney David Bailey, it lasted only about five minutes.
Council members voted to approve the written minutes of the Sept. 27 council meeting and the Oct. 11 committee of the whole meeting. No new business items were on the agenda.
Mayor Maddox asked for comments from council members or from others present. There were none.
Maddox announced that the financial reports distributed to council members showed no change from those presented at the earlier committee meeting. He said the city’s income for the last three years has been above previous average income. September was a good month for the city, he said, with income $25,000 over the average for last year. He also noted that 10 business buildings have been purchased on Main Street this year and said he felt that was a sign that the Main Street improvement project was paying off.
