Brady Council Hears Annual Audit Report, Approves Vehicle Purchases

The Brady City Council began its meeting Tuesday night with a presentation by  the City’s independent auditor, Haynie and Company, of the
City’s  fiscal year 2021 Audit Report. According to the Auditor, the City’s financial records are in good order, with no significant accounting issues.

The bulk of the meeting was devoted to the purchase and financing of equipment and vehicles for the City  — a 2019 pneumatic roller, a dump truck, a new F-250 Ford pickup and a new Freightliner residential trash truck. All of the equipment was included in the current year’s budget.

Other action items included discussion of the seasonal membership fee for the Brady Golf Course, and extending the agreement with McCulloch County Junior Livestock Association for use of the G. Rollie White Complex to 2027.

The Council approved the second and final readings of zoning changes at 105 W. Pierce and 501/503 N. Bridge St. requested by Debra Luebano.  Appearing on KNEL’s Morning Program Wednesday, Mayor Tony Groves explained that the property is located just north and west of the north end of the bridge over Brady Creek on Bridge Street.

The Council agreed to a request for a noise variance at Richards Park on June 24th and 25th and a proclamation designating April as National Donate Life Month.

The meeting concluded with an executive session to discuss personnel issues.
