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.
