JUNE 2013

Summer has arrived. 
Watch out for children playing.

City of Pinson Park in the works
The June 6, 2013  meeting of the Pinson City Council agenda can be viewed below. (Click to enlarge)

 Among the highlights were:
* Offering of  a $500 reward for information into car thefts and breakins that have recently taken place in  surrounding communities since the close of school.
* Movies in May had to be held inside due to weather. Because of this money was lost on rental of movie projection equipment. Council is researching purchasing its own movie projection equipment for the City of Pinson.
* The cedar tree in Triangle Park will be decorated for the holiday season instead of purchasing a tree as has been done in the past.
* The library board has a vacancy which it will fill, now that Robbie Roberts has vacated the post and  holds Place 3 in his position as  Pinson City Councilor.
*Dedication of the Baird Tatum Cemetery will take place June 8, 2013 at 1:00pm. Because of parking restraints at the cemetery, those wishing to attend are asked to park at Restoration Church  located next to Mission Possible at 4496 Center Point Rd . You will receive further directions from someone there.
