FORBUS RESOLUTION – Mayor Howard Boozer presented Amory High School senior Addie Forbus with a resolution honoring her achievements in the field of soccer. Forbus was honored at the last board of aldermen meeting.

“As far as we are concerned champion and hero simplifies attributes of a great athlete on and off the field,” Boozer said.
Police Chief Ronnie Bowen requested a discussion of Ordinance 1636, which addresses animal control and vicious animals.
“I feel that hearings about dog bites would be best heard by the city court judge,” Bowen said.
The board approved tabling the discussion until the next meeting to allow city attorney John Creekmore time to research the matter.
In other business, the board approved:
-A request to take soil samples from a piece of property on Waterway Drive to determine if the area is suitable for a community garden.
-A recommendation of the Planning Commission to approve the preliminary plat and phase I of Edgefield subdivision on Old Hwy 25 South.
-A request for FM95 to broadcast Amory panther baseball games at a cost of $165 per month at a one-third split.
