East Brewton’s July 4th celebration got a boost Monday with a contribution for the event presented to council members from Georgia-Pacific.
Jason Daniel, manager of public affairs at Georgia-Pacific, was on hand to present a check to the city officials.
East Brewton Mayor Terry Clark accepted the check on behalf of the city, offering thanks for the fund.
Also during Monday’s meeting, property conditions were up for discussion.
Troy Minchew, owner of a dwelling at 813 Dailey St.,, approached the council requesting additional time to make needed repairs at the home.
Council members agreed to allow Minchew an additional 90 days to complete the work and bring the residence up to code.
Lynn Pitts, owner of a mobile home park off U.S. 29 on Dauphin Street, also told council members that work was progressing at the location.
Clark told Pitts patrols would be taking place through the park.
Clark reminded council members of the upcoming Earth Day event to be observed April 24.
Clark also presented the council with a list of other activities to be included as part of the Earth Day clean-up project.
