The City of Highland will be holding their 10th Anniversary Celebration Oct. 11, and the Highland City Council discussed plans for this event during their meeting held Sept. 9.
The anniversary celebration will be held at the Highland High School football field. All Highland business owners have been invited to attend and participate in the celebration. The city has asked business owners to attend, set up a display or some form of contribution to help advertise with handouts or giveaways.
The celebration will include live music, free refreshments, a classic car contest, a football punt and pass contest, along with many other activities.
In other business the council discussed letters that have been sent to business owners who have yet to clean up the rubble from the tornado. The council said that while they know people are still recovering from the Feb. 5 tornado, it has been seven months and the city has to move on and this issue has to be dealt with. The council said they were assured the messes would be cleaned up by now.
The person who owns the property where Pap Beardsley used to be and the owner of the lot where The Rose Garden was before the storm both received one of these letters. The council warned the property owners to consider the letter their clean up notice.
The council was also reminded that several of the planning commission members are nearing the end of their term which is in November. The council listed: Lawrence Allen, Jeff Kamps and Randy McComas, for re-appointment. It was also noted that Robert Dollar advised he can no longer serve on the commission. It was requested the council furnish another name for the commission.
