Thereasa Hulgan, executive director, Cherokee County Chamber of Com-merce, asked the city to consider deeding the Chamber of Commerce building to the Childrens Advocacy Center of Cherokee County.
To make room for the Gadsden State facility, the Chamber building will have to razed or moved. Plans are to locate the Chamber office inside the new GSCC facility.
The Advocacy Center along with other agencies approached the Chamber about using the building, Hulgan said. The Advocacy Center is fast-outgrowing its current building on North River Street in Centre.
The council agreed to consider the proposal further at a later date.
Dean Hudson with Hudson Real Estate met with the council on behalf of Charles Wynn, owner of the former sock mill in Centre Industrial Park. Hudson announced Wynns intention to sell the building to a buyer who is interested in placing an antique mall in the building.
Hudson said they wanted to check with the council before making the transaction to be sure they are not in violation of any regulations governing the industrial park property.
City Attorney Al Shu-maker said he didnt know of any restrictions that would prevent Wynn from making the sale.
Councilman Harry Moon said the city is ready to take bids on the concession stand to be built at the new softball complex.
They are working on the bleachers, he said. It looks like we may be playing on the new fields the last half of this season.
On behalf of the fire department, Councilman Frankie Kelly said they have started work on applying for grant funds to purchase new equipment. He also reported that Charles Laney is acting fire chief
