NOLANVILLE Big parties are planned for the city of Nolanville.
The City Council on Thursday agreed to support a benefit for the Nolanville Fire Department on April 2, tour a Girl Scout camp and support an election day health fair.
A representative from Kays Motor Cycle Mania told the City Council their goal is to raise $10,000 for the fire department. Last year, the benefit raised $4,600.
Ricardo Acosta of First Response Medical Training addressed the City Council on the progress of the Elect to save a life health fair, which will be on Election Day, May 13.
Its just a service to the community, said Ricardo Acosta, medical instructor and owner of First Response Medical Training. Were providing a service to the city to learn CPR and help the EMS system.
Planners for the health fair want to get food donated from local grocery stores. Acosta said Scott & White and the American Heart Association will contribute to the cause by providing their services.
I think it is very important for the citizens and for the council to back it up, Councilman Donnie Rohloff said. Nolanville has always been a town where people come forward and help.
In other business, the City Council unanimously approved an ordinance calling for the May 13 election.
City Treasurer Vicki Brown addressed the City Council and said there are still financial concerns for the city.
As you can see, cash flow is very critical right now, Brown said.
Brown said $36,000 of property taxes is still waiting to be collected and that the money will be needed within the next one to two weeks to cover bills. The city currently has $10,300 right now to cover expenses.
Brown told the City Council an audit will be done next week and it could cost more than usual.
The next scheduled City Council meeting will be moved from April 6 to April 5.
