Employees of the garbage de- partment advised council that their schedule was already tight and they didn't see how this added service could be accom- plished without additional men. Council decided that maybe by rearranging schedules, they could arrange this on a trial basis, only, during the monthof June. Letters, rules and re- gulations will be forth coming to city residents. This is for household garbage only and anyone wishing to continue to bring garbage to the street could certainly do so. It was brought to council's attention that in the interest of saving time, spare tires should be furnished the garbage de- partment for trucks. Whenthey have flats, it takes three or four hours to get back on the job. It was decided that these spares would be purchased. Mayor Evans had written Hooper & McDonald, Inc., of Andalusia for estimates on cost of paving drives at Florala Me- morial Cemetery.

Evans suggested that they meet with members of the Cemetery Board and discuss this pos- sibility. There was a vacancy on the Florala City Board when Bill McDaniel's term was up and he declined to serve another term. Councilman Jack Zorn nomin- ated Rupert Greene to fill that vacancy, seconded by Council- woman Sybil Mickler. Coun- cilwoman Venia Hutchinson no- mlnated Robert Rodwell; se- conded by Mayor Joe R. Evans. The vote for Greene went: for- Mickler, Zorn and Anderson; against - Hutchinson, Jones and Evans. Mayor cast the tie- breaking vote, no. The vote for Rodwell: against - Zorn, Mickler and Anderson; for - Hutchinson, Jones and Evan6. Due to the tie, the Mayor cast the deciding vote for Rodwell's appointment to the City School Board.

Aday of Edd's Spur Service off premises beer license (Hut- chinson abstained); to extend the CETA Fund contract; em- ploy Mrs. Joyce Perdue to com- pile a qualified list of city vot- ers; and approved monthly bills.
