LI-I COUNCIL by Jack Davis The Laurel Hill City Coun- cil, faced with a July I, 1976 deadline to adopt the local Go- vernment Comprehensive Plan- sing Act of 1975, studied the issue during the regular ses- siGn Thursday night and in- structed Clerk Bill Hurston to request more information on the matter from the West Flo- rida Regional Planning Coun- unteer fire department. No amount that the city might re- ceive had not been decided on, according to Wynn. However, all agreed any amount receiv- ed would be a welcome relief. The motion, seconded by Coun- cilman Slrickland, carried with all in favor. Council approved a $50dona- tion to the Laurel Hill High ath- letic department and was ad- vised by letter from Commis- sioner Hayward Hayes that the board would assist in cleaning up of hurricane damage in Al- mirante Cemetery. In refer- ring to a large tree blown over by the storm, Hayes said the board's heavy equipment was limited and might have pro- blems in this particular work. SOUTH FIFTH STREET FLORALA, MR. AND MRS.
