Mayor Dwight Tankersley recommended that Hartselle adopt the Veteran’s Day Parade as a city event at the regular city council meeting held Tuesday, Oct. 23. This will be the second year for the event, to be held beginning at 9 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 10 in downtown. Tankersley suggested the city take on the parade to help keep it an annual event, sparing the committee individuals the costs of insurance, port-a-toilets and so forth. The council approved appointing an advisory committee made up of the original independent committee including Lee Y. Greene Jr. as chairman, joined by Cleo Stubbs, Robert Dotson, George Miller, and Brain M. White.
The council approved City Attorney Larry Madison’s suggestion for the city to take on the event with the advisory committee for this year only, because of the short notice. Then, at a later date create a formal resolution to adopt the event as a special city event.
The council also approved the following items:
• The special events permit for the 2012 2nd annual Hartselle Area Veteran’s Day Parade.
• The special events permit for Trunk or Treat at First United Methodist Church.
• Set the time for swearing in new mayor Don Hall, and council members for 6:30p.m. Monday, Nov. 5 at City Hall.
• Held a public hearing and then adopted ordinance 1381 to rezone the Lektron property on U.S. 31 North from B-1 to B-2.
• Held a public hearing and then adopted ordinance 1382 to make changes to the definitions section of the zoning ordinance, as well as permitted use section of the B-1 and B-2 zones including definitions for “major auto repair” and “minor auto repair.”
