CENTER POINT—During Thursday night’s City Council meeting, Tim Gann presented the quarterly report for the Chamber of Commerce, which included the money that was raised by the charity golf tournament in October.
“We netted over $5,000,” Gann said. “That’s the most we’ve ever made at a golf tournament before.”
Gann also shared an update on the Center Point Comprehensive Plan Update from Principal Planner Lindsay Puckett, who spoke at the October Luncheon.
“She stated that 180 people had taken the survey online, so that will go toward their future plans,” he said.
Gann also announced that Miss Center Point will speak at the chamber’s luncheon on Dec. 13.
During the meeting, the council voted to approve a contractor for maintenance work, including work needed on the Chamber of Commerce building. They also approved Mayor Tom Henderson to accept bids for work to be done on the parking lot of the historic Patterson House.
“The previous bidder fell through, so they’re now taking new bids for that job,” Councilor Scott said.
Later, the council reported on a number of updates from the community, including the next Neighborhood Watch meeting, which will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 6 from 7-9p.m, and the Center Point Parade.
“We’ve got the Christmas Parade coming up Saturday, Dec.10 at 11 a.m.,” Henderson said. “It begins at Cathedral of the Cross and goes to the Post Office.”
Anyone who wishes to participate should contact Tim Gann at 853-9711 for an entry form.
It was also announced that Center Point’s 9u football team won the Snapper Bowl, a national championship which takes place in Panama City Beach, Florida.
Henderson also reported that the Regional Planning Commission met with department heads to discuss ideas for the Comprehensive Plan Update, and that the Market Analysis Draft has been released.
The next city council meeting will be held on Thursday, Dec. 15 at 7 p.m., with pre-council at 6:45.
