The council adopted a resolution to borrow up to $60,000 from Warren Bank and Trust Company to pay for the new generator that has been installed at the Emergency Services Center.

The council approved the low bid of M & T Paving Construction Company, Inc. for paving work at the city airport.  The bid was for $517,581.00.  Grant funds will help pay for the project.

The aldermen condemned three pieces of property and ordered them cleaned up.  All three were lots that need cleaning but structures on the lots do not need to be torn down.  They are located at 614 Pierson St., 1018 Thomas Street, and 202 Meek Street.

Other departmental reports were given, and reports from city boards and commissions were provided.

The council voted to be a sponsor of the Bradley County Fair in the amount of $1500.00.

They reviewed and voted to pay all bills for July 2016.

The next meeting was set for Sept. 12, at 5:30 p.m.
