The council did not take any action at Monday night's meeting on the request for the installation of a speed bump on Plum streetMayor Iva Lou Stoker said she didn't think a speed bump would solve the problem.

Mayor Stoker gave the council an update on work done so far on the old depot that will be transformed into a combination library-museum complex, she said she didn't realize some of the wood was in such bad shape.

Anyone who would like to volunteer to help with the renovation of the depot should contact Denise Link or contact the Mayor at City Hall.

Mayor Stoker told the council members she wasn't aware of a big problem that exists with rural water users.

The Mayor told the council what's going to have to happen with multiple users on one water meter.

In other action, the Mayor said the property that had been donated to the city has already been resold for $4,000.00. That money will go into the depot renovation project.

Phillip Lambert addressed the council and told of a meeting that was being held yesterday to so how many people 60 years of age and older would be interested in forming an activity center in Bearden. We'll be checking with Lambert to get an update on that meeting.

By a unanimous vote, the council voted to purchase a new flush machine for the Bearden Sewer system, cost of the new machine is $40,000.00.
