Daleville council work session Monday

Daleville Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Michelle Powell

A Daleville City Council work session is set for Monday, Feb. 1, at 5 p.m. at the city hall council chambers.

Expected to be on the agenda are the issues of live streaming council meetings, placing city logos on city vehicles and the Code Red community notification system.

The three issues have been tabled at several consecutive council meetings pending an opportunity to discuss them in detail at a work session.

At the Daleville City Council meeting Jan. 19, the council discussed the contract to be used in connection with the entertainment venue at the Family Fun Fest held at Culpepper Park.

Daleville City Attorney Henry Steagall said that the creation of standardized permanent contract to be used instead of having to redraw the contract each year will facilitate the process. “This is the permanent contract and we’re not going to have to redo it every year or twice a year,” Steagall explained. “We will just add the updated fair dates as they occur.”

Daleville Mayor Jayme Stayton noted that Daleville will now be recognized by the state as the site of the Dale County Fair. The council opted to table a vote on the contract until they had the opportunity to read the contract.

In other business, the mayor appointed Scott Wurgler to the Daleville Housing Authority Board for a term that expires in 2025. The council reappointed Rita Moore and Carolyn Ford to the City Tree Board.

In the Boys and Girls Club of Daleville Report, Board Chairman Joel Adams received council permission to host an inaugural Chili Cook off in Culpepper Park Saturday, Feb. 27. More information will be forthcoming as plans finalize, he said.

In the Daleville Area Chamber of Commerce report, Chamber Executive Director Michelle Powell announced that the chamber has a new part time office manager. Summer MacGregor is also president of the Fort Rucker Community Spouses' Club. “We are happy to have her on board helping the chamber do more for the community and look forward to strengthening the relationship with Fort Rucker as well,” Powell said. “She is a huge asset.”

The next meeting of the Daleville City Council is a work session Monday, Feb. 1 at 5 p.m. The next voting meeting of the Daleville City Council is Tuesday, Feb. 2 at 5:30 p.m. Both meetings are held at the Daleville City Hall Council Chambers and both meetings are open to the public.
