City Council Knocks Super Short Agenda In Under 6 Minutes

The Cullman City Council met this evening for their regular semi-monthly meeting.

The Cullman City Council Meeting is held every 2nd and 4th Monday of each month (unless otherwise changed) at 7 pm.

Cullman City Council Meeting
Lucille N. Galin Auditorium
204 2nd Avenue NE
Cullman, AL 35055

~~ All City Council meetings are open to the public ~~

The agenda was short with only three action items to attend to:

APPROVED: A request from Lynsey Todd of the Warehouse District for a special event permit to hold a street and sidewalk sale at First Avenue NE on Friday, March 2nd, 2018 and Saturday, March 3rd, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. each day.

TABLED: The first reading of an ordinance to annex 11 acres located at 1230 County Road 703 owned by Jon and Kim Montgomery into the city limits of Cullman which received an unfavorable recommendation by the City of Cullman Planning Commission.

APPROVED: Resolution #2018-29 which authorizes a second change order for Carcel and G Construction LLC on Streetscape Phase IV for $7,605.83. The change order is due to increases in the quantities of materials needed for the project. This was recommended to the Council by CDG Engineers & Associates.

The meeting itself took 5 minutes and 54 seconds. We are not sure if that is an all-time modern era record, but it has to be close.

After the meeting concluded, a citizen approached the Councilmembers and received an audience for his belief that laws need to be enacted that limit/block firearms sales to individuals 20 years old and under.

Mayor Woody Jacobs was absent from tonight’s business. The Mayor is back in Washington D.C. conducting business on behalf of the City of Cullman and the Utilities Board.
