After an almost marathon meeting two weeks ago, the city of Dyersburg Board of Mayor and Aldermen had a relatively light agenda on Monday evening only approving two beer permits and their attorney's invoice.
Dyersburg Police Chief Art Heun presented the permits to the board stating that the DPD's investigation of the application revealed that the applicant appeared to meet all the criteria. Heun recommended that the board approve the permits. Mayor John Holden opened the floor for public comment but no one made any comments, and the permits were unanimously approved on a motion by Alderman Bob Kirk and a second by Alderwoman Joan Wyatt. The permits approved were for the following businesses:
* A-Deep located at 190 Hwy. 51 Bypass South
* Applebee's Neighborhood Grill and Bar located at 2700 Lake Road.
In other business:
* The city attorney's invoice was presented for payment. The invoice for services rendered in the month of November amounted to $8,675.26. The invoice was unanimously approved on a motion by Alderman Bart Williams and a second by Alderman Robert Taylor Jr.
In the alderman reports:
* Kirk wished everyone a merry Christmas. He wished a merry Christmas especially to the city employees and thanked them for all their dedicated service throughout the year.
* Williams passed stating that he couldn't put it any better than Kirk.
* Alderman Terry Glover reported that the new floor at the Bruce Community Center looks great.
* Alderman Dennis Moody wished everyone a merry Christmas and said he hoped to see everyone next year.
* Alderman Kevin Chaney, Alderwoman Jewell Horner, Wyatt and Taylor wished everyone a merry Christmas.
In the mayor's report:
* Holden announced a partnership with Fyrne Lake Farms to recycle Christmas trees. Christmas trees can be dropped off at the downtown River Park area between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. any day of the week after Christmas. According to Holden recycling the trees will help keep them out of the city landfill.
* Holden commended the Kiwanis Club on their outstanding recent fundraiser for the McIver's Grant Public Library. Holden believes Kiwanis cleared approximately $18,000 to $23,000 and wished to congratulate them on their success.
