ris-Williams that “there's no connection between what you have planned and what has been happening in some of our neighborhoods. I don’t want you to think that it is implied. We have the Real Squeal, the Soap Box Derby, we have all types of community events and this is another one that’s a great celebration and you are doing it right and there’s no reason to anticipate any of the problems that we’ve had in some of the private neighborhoods. I don’t think any of those folks will drift over and cause problems, and if they do, our Police Chief is going to be there to stop that. I look forward to your event.”
Hall continued his report with a request by the Toombs County School Board that the water tank on City property located next to Toombs County High School be painted to remove the LYONS lettering and replace the lettering with a two-color flying T stencil. They have also requested the area below the catwalk be painted Toombs County Red. The estimated cost is $54,000. The Toombs County School Board has agreed to reimburse the City for all costs. Council approved the repainting of the water tank and the catwalk.
The Council also approved an amendment to the capital budget for the fiscal year 2021 in order to appropriate $80,000 for emergency repair of the City’s U.S. Highway 1 North well so that the City can continue to provide potable water within the City.
In other business, Chief Walker reported that on June 14-18 the Lyons Police Department will host the statewide Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) conference at Partin Park. Walker invited the Council to attend this training and certification event.
