Change suggested for water sales in Nov. Corning City Council meeting

The agenda of the November meeting of the Corning City Council held no new or old business, but as in the October meeting; the crux of the meeting was discussed during the Information and Announcements segment. The main discussion of the evening was a proposal by Councilman Ray Vannoy to sell water to residents by the gallon.

Before the meeting officially began there was a short discussion among the panel about the wood chipper, which has been sent to be repaired many times since its purchase. Councilman Masterson asked Attorney Alex Bigger if there was anything the city could do. City Clerk J’Anna Couch explained the city still owes on the chipper for another year; until December of next year. Mayor Ahrent said he thought the chipper had been sent to Jonesboro for repair at least three times this year for extended periods of time. It was discussed that the city paid $48,000 for the chipper. Councilman Godwin suggested that the city gather all the documentation on the chipper and give it to City Attorney Alex Bigger. The meeting was then called to order.
