The August meeting of Gray’s city council committees began with a brief called meeting followed by Mayor Stephen Tingen rehashing several issues, including checks he refused to sign.

The first agenda item for the Aug. 18 called meeting was the opening of bids to sell three police cars that was awarded to Brannen Ford of Unadilla. Councilman Terrell Fulford made a motion to accept the bids, which was unanimously approved.

Tingen said, for the next item, zoning officer Tim Pitrowski requested a motion to begin the process to allow removal of dirt for county and state road projects.

Interim city attorney John Newberry said the county is doing the same thing to allow work to progress on the North Gray Bypass since, as of now, they cannot move the dirt needed. Councilman David Tufts moved to proceed with the zoning change, which was approved unanimously.

Tingen closed the called meeting, and Mayor Pro Tem Ed Barbee called the all committees meeting to order.

Fulford, who chairs the finance committee, said the city was still in good financial shape. He added that dates needed to be set to set the millage rate so tax bills could be sent out in October.
