The Mammoth Spring City Council completed their statements of financial interest and filed them at their Jan. 3 meeting. Mayor Jean Pace explained to the audience that this is when elected officials have to disclose their sources of income and the amount.
The council voted to adopted the 2006 Mammoth Spring city budget. The budget for this year is $593,600. The mayor said there was not a significant change in any department.
Because of complaints from city residents that a business in the city may not be safe, due to loose brick falling off the structure. The mayor and the council asked a structural engineering firm, Smith and Company from Poplar Bluff, Mo., to do a structural analysis on Michael's Antiques. The business is located at Third and Main Street in the city.
The building is 80 years old and is owned by a local man, Wayne Michaels. Pace presented the council the results found by the firm. The council voted to send Michaels a letter and ask him to make the needed repairs to the business. Pace said if the request is not met the council would be asked to take further action.
The council asked Bill Pace to continue as a member of the Advertising and Promotions Committee in the city and Pace agreed. It is the job of the council to appoint local citizens to the committee.
The next Mammoth Spring City Council meeting will be Feb. 9 at Mammoth Spring City Hall.
