Aliceville Council hears good financial report from Mayor

By Brian Hamilton
Correspondent
The Aliceville City Council learned last Wednesday evening that its finances are “looking good” halfway through the 2015 fiscal year, according to Mayor Billy McKinzey.
While discussing the monthly bills, McKinzey shared a financial statement comparing the first six months of the 2015 fiscal year to the first six months of the 214 fiscal year.
Revenue collections for the halfway point of the current fiscal year are $1.322 million, compared to $1.159 million in 2014. McKinzey said the city is pretty much where they budgeted it would be, and if the next six months hold true, Aliceville should end the year without having to borrow any money.
EMERGENCY PURCHASE OF A TRACTOR
The Council voted to make an emergency purchase of a tractor for the city. The two bids considered were $35,500 by H&R Agri-Power of Aliceville and $47,009 by John Deere. The council discussed the bids and agreed to go with the lowest bid for the tractor. Councilwoman Marva Gipson made a motion, which was seconded by Councilman Max Allen. It was unanimously approved.
