It was a gorgeous afternoon for a city council meeting. The Hanceville City
Council met Thursday for their regularly scheduled council meeting and in
keeping with the guidelines set forth by Governor Kay Ivey, Mayor Kenneth Nail
decided to hold the meeting outside with all in attendance carefully spaced six
feet apart. 

Friday morning at the Hanceville Civic Center, Jack’s
will be giving out biscuits starting at 9 a.m. This will be done through a
drive-up procedure so please remain in your car. Volunteers will be wearing
gloves and masks and taking all protective measures. 

The business end of the meeting was short, but the
council did approve the mayor to sign the Goodwyn Mills Cawood (GMC)
Engineering Agreement. GMC is the engineering firm for the gutters and repaving
project on Commercial Street. The project is part of Governor Kay Ivey’s
Rebuild Alabama Act Annual Grant Program.

The council also approved paying the $2300 invoice to
Terracon Consultants for work performed at the site in preparation for the soon
to be built Hanceville Senior Center. 

Hanceville Assistant Fire Chief Bart Absher reported a
decrease in calls for the department due to new protocols put into place to
limit emergency personnel to possible exposure to Covid-19. The 911 call-center
has begun dispatching the ambulance services to all general sick calls, thus
decreasing the fire departments call volume.

Free landfill pick-up is still scheduled for the week
of April 20-24. All items must be placed outside by noon on the 24th. Household
garbage, batteries, gas tanks, tires, paint, shingles and hazardous materials
will not be accepted. 

The next Hanceville City Council meeting is scheduled for April 9 at 6pm.
