Town offers CVB update, adds website

Thursday, January 10, 2013 — With a fairly light agenda, Badin’s town council enjoyed a relatively quick night at its monthly meeting.

The board made a motion and seconded for Mayor Jim Harrison to continue to fill in as an alternate member of the Stanly County CVB Board of Directors. Mayor Pro Tem Delores Chambers, who represents West Badin, has served as the primary member on the board and has been recovering from a foot injury, which has forced her to miss the last couple of meetings.

After that, most of the council’s discussions turned to the town’s code enforcement and the public works report. Among the items:

A house that burned down Nov. 17 will be addressed as far as proceeding with taking care of the status of the structure.

The town’s three-month streak without a larceny ended with one reported in December.

Light brush pick-up was reported with some Christmas trees, but not enough to make one big load. Wayne Carter, supervisor of public works and property maintenance, said a third round of leaf pick-up will begin on Monday and run through Jan. 24. A total of 40 loads were taken away last time.

Banners to mark the town’s 100th anniversary are also going up throughout the town.

Town Manager Jay Almond reported that, the website to recognize the town’s 100th anniversary, was operational. He and Jim Hatley of Leading Edge Web Design have been working to put it together. Hatley was also responsible for the town’s website,

Almond also noted that the theatre production “This Is Who We Are,” will be held at 7 p.m. Friday-Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday at Badin Elementary. Admission is $5. It’s the first event in the town’s centennial celebration.

Also of note:

The town hall will be closed Jan. 21 for Martin Luther King Day.

A barbecue fundraiser will be at the fire station on Jan. 26, the second of the town’s centennial celebrations. A fire history slideshow will be shown during the event.

The next town meeting will be at 7 p.m. Feb. 12 at town hall.
