MAMMOTH SPRING -- The Mammoth Spring City Council met in regular session Dec. 3.
The council discussed trading some property the city owns at the community baseball field site on Highway 9.
They voted to trade three to five acres of the back side of the property to Glen Case for 125-feet by 200-feet of highway frontage. This trade will square-up both properties and allow the city to place a building where it is needed and run the needed sewer lines to the building.
The mayor and the council discussed some grant opportunities. The mayor said if the grants were received she would like to see some work done to city hall and to the American Legion located in the basement of city hall. "I would like to see the front of the building returned to its original look when it was built in 1934. This would expose the original rock on the front of the building," she said.
The council looked at alley closings in the city. Several alleys have been closed in recent years. The council voted to update the city map to reflect the alley closings.
Some council members expressed concern that many residents in the city did not know the city has a recycling program and discussed different ways to educate them on the program. The mayor said the city has received four grants as a result of the program.
She said flyers concerning the program are available at city hall and also at some businesses around the town.
