Town of Huntingdon Approves 2019-20 Audit, Seeks Grant for Fire Pumper

Posted

HUNTINGDON (February 9) — The Town of Huntingdon Board of Mayor and Council approved the 2019-20 fiscal year audit during its February 9 meeting.

Mayor Dale Kelley said of the audit:

The Fiscal Year 2020 Audit had no current year or prior year findings.

Summary of the Net Change in Fund Balance for each account:

General Fund – increase of $95,341

The Dixie PAC – increase of $7,320

Drug Fund – decrease of $25,508 (purchase of general and transportation equipment from prior year reserves)

Utility Fund – increase of $1,311,771 (includes Depreciation Total of $443,946)

Industrial Board – increase of $202,995 (includes Depreciation Total of $38,932)

The board approved the Fire Department’s request to submit an application for a FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant for the purchase of a Fire Engine Pumper in the amount of $350,000 with a 5% local match.

Kelley commented on the recent death of Hal Holbrook.

The passing of Hal Holbrook is certainly a loss for the Dixie Carter Performing Arts and Academic Enrichment Center and people in West Tennessee. He was an inspiration and a legend whose memory we will keep alive through the programs and opportunities that we make available to all ages at the Dixie PAC. Hal took an active role in the design of the theatre and served as an invaluable consultant to the architect. We will certainly miss him and his friendship. We are pleased to continue to share the arts, and his legacy for future generations.

A water bill was adjusted for Palma Adams.

The property located at 379 Cotham Drive had a busted pipe. The bill was $1,636.69, and under the normal adjustment policy the bill was adjusted to $393.95. Precedence has been set in prior situations where the council adjusted the bills to $250.00.
