City, PCI to enter animal control agreement

By   /   October 26, 2011  /   Comments Off on City, PCI to enter animal control agreement

At Monday’s Atmore City Council meeting, the council authorized Mayor Howard Shell to enter into an agreement with Poarch Creek Indians to provide animal control for this end of the county.

Since the city and Humane Society of Escambia County severed ties several months ago, the city has been without an animal control department.

Shell said after the meeting that details have yet to be worked out, but the city’s animal shelter on Cindebran Drive will be made available.

The council is continuing clean-up efforts around the city. At the recommendation of city enforcement officer Greg Vaughn, the council adopted Resolution 2011-14 addressing five properties that have yet to be brought into compliance by the owners. {Resolution 2011-14 is printed in its entirety in this edition of Atmore News.]

Vaughn also submitted a cost report for properties that have been cleaned up by the city: 601 Nashville Avenue, $694.41; 39 Liberty Street, $781.91; 139 Harris Street, $762.25; 1129 South Presley Street, $963.06. Tax liens for these expenses will be added to the homeowners’ tax bills.

In other business, the council

* authorized the mayor to act on behalf of the city in current financial dealings with Wells Fargo, BB&T, and First National Bank & Trust. Councilmen John Garrard and Chris Walker abstained from the vote concerning FNB&T.

* authorized the mayor to act on behalf of the city concerning PCI Trust Land.

* denied a request by John E. Frye for a business license at Assembly Place on Carver Avenue. Frye told the council his business had been placed on a one-year probation by the state, but the year is up now. Mayor Shell told Frye he had too many violations at his business and he recommended the council deny the request.

* denied a request by Bobby Frye for a license at the Chik-A-Dee on Carver Avenue. The mayor made the same recommendation to the council as he did with John Frye’s request.
