Council to declare winners, cancel election

By Bob Buckel | Published Saturday, April 12, 2014

With just one candidate for each place on the ballot, the Decatur City Council is expected to declare those who have filed to be elected when they meet at 6 p.m. Monday.

The action will mean the city need not hold an election May 10, although they will still host voting for the Decatur ISD school board, which does have contested races.

That is one of 12 items on the council’s agenda for Monday.

They will also:

  • approve minutes and bills for March;
  • proclaim April 13-19 as National Library Week and the month of April as National Safe Digging Month;
  • hold a public hearing on a replat application by Todd and Susan Parks for a tract on North Trinity St.;
  • consider and take action on proposed street projects on Eagle Drive and Thompson Street, and Deer Park Road;
  • consider requests by the Decatur Main Street Program for a street closure for the Glitzy Girl Trailer Park event Saturday, April 19, and on May 3, June 7, Sept. 6 and Oct. 4 for Cruise Nights on the Courthouse Square;
  • consider a request from the Carson Elementary PTO to set aside a portion of several streets with cones for a 5K and 1K run Saturday, April 26;
  • consider reappointing Mark Duncum, Don Ogle and J.D. Sifford to the board of adjustment for a two-year period expiring in October 2015;
  • get an update from the police chief regarding the city’s emergency notification systems and give direction.

The meeting will be held at City Hall, 201 E. Walnut St., and is open to the public.
