ARGO — The Argo City Council voted unanimously to elect councilor Danny McCarley to represent the city as its voting delegate for the Alabama Municipal Insurance Corporation during the Alabama League of Municipalities convention, which will be held in Tuscaloosa in May.
The council also approved Ordinance 2022-04-11, amending its Safe Streets Act. The ordinance passed 5-1, with Mayor Betty Bradley voting no.
Councilor Ann Brown spoke on the dedication of the city’s Book Nook, which took place Saturday, April 9.
“We had a good show of people,” Brown said. “The Book Nook is full of books. Children are welcome to come get a book, take it home with them, and we have a volunteer that is going to keep the Book Nook furnished with books. I’m excited about that. It’s been a long time coming. So, we are excited to add that to Argo Park.“
Mayor Bradley also said that she wanted to thank Brown, the Rotary Club, and Better Basics for the hard work they put into the Book Nook and its dedication.
“ I think it’s really going to benefit our children,“ she said.
