East Brewton applies for grant for sewer rehab

By Lisa Tindell

Maintaining six-foot social distancing guidelines, the East Brewton City Council met in regular session on Monday. Mayor Pro-tem Kenny Hultz led the meeting in the absence of Mayor Terry Clark.
During the meeting, city councilmen approved a resolution to apply for a CDBG grant to assist with planned work of the East Brewton Water Works.
The annual application is made in an attempt to help gain funds to be used for projects of the utility including sewer rehabilitation, according to city officials.
If the grant is awarded, the funds will be managed by the East Brewton City Hall and overseen by mayor and council.
In other business, the council recently reviewed the election registration fee for candidates. A motion made by Ludon Simmons was made to keep the current fee of $50 in place for those who wish to register for election. The council unanimously approved the fee placement for the next election cycle.
The East Brewton City Council meetings are held the second and fourth Monday’s of each month and are open to the public. Seating is limited under the current Centers for Disease Control guidelines, as the council chambers will only allow approximately six visitors keeping a six-foot social distance.
The next meeting of the council will be held on July 13 at 5:30 p.m.
