Dresden Board Meeting

December 4th, 2012 - By Steve James

The two new members of the Dresden City Board had their first meeting as Alderman last night.

Jeff Washburn and Joyce Hurt were sworn in along with incumbent Dick Tidwell after they all claimed seats in the November election.

In other business, Mayor Danny Forrester said recycling pick up in Dresden will start the 13th of this month. The new recycling trash cans will be delivered this week along with a calender showing the pick up schedule. The one dollar increase in service will also be on this month’s bill.

The Board also approved the purchase of a new leaf pick up machine for the public works department for $19,000 dollars and approved a $4900 dollar paving bid to repair some driveways within the city.

Police Chief Randal Walker also announced Officer Gary Eddings has been nominated for speed enforcement officer of the year by the Governor Highway’s Safety Office. Officer Eddings will receive a plaque at a ceremony in Jackson later this month.
