Forbus honored with resolution for City of Amory
AMORY – Amory High School soccer phenom Addie Forbus was presented with a resolution on behalf of the city at the board of aldermen’s regular-called meeting on March 5.
“Addie is a true champion who has represented us at the highest level. This resolution is to honor Addie’s athletic achievements in the field of soccer,” said Mayor Howard Boozer.
Forbus broke the states’ scoring record with 231 goals and has been signed by the University of Mississippi.
“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.
