Final Numbers

The outgoing Luther Town Trustees met Tuesday night in their final regular meeting. Mayor Cecilia Taft, and Trustees Birlene Langley, Carolyn Lawson and Andy McDaniels will leave office officially on Monday, April 17.

There was apparently a couple of pages worth of agenda items for the board to consider before the agenda was published Monday, however, the agenda was whittled down to the bare minimum for the Board and the Luther Public Works Authority. All of the trustees attended and made quick work of both meetings in less than 15 minutes. Aside from approving the “consent agenda” including minutes and claims, Town Clerk Kim Bourns handled swearing in duties for new board members, Paxton Cavin, Jason Roach, Jenni White and Trandy Langston.

The outgoing Board agreed to approve several claims, or monthly bills highlighted here (rounded to nearest dollar):
