Monday, March 4, 2013 — City Council members narrowly approved a consideration for a biosolids dryer at the wastewater treatment plant to be sold as surplus property Monday night.

Some council members preferred that they wait to take action until a study is completed by Municipal Engineering before making the dryer surplus property, available for sale through bids.

The consideration was approved by a vote of 4-3, with councilmembers Martha Sue Hall, Ronnie Michael and Dexter Townsend voting against the proposal.
