The June 4, 2020 Carrollton Town Council meeting began with Mayor Mickey Walker giving a COVID-19 update. “Since the last meeting, the Governor has slacked up on the guidelines, so we slacked up on the stores as long as they maintain six foot distance,” Walker said. “If that changes again with the Governor, we will change with it because we’ve already got that ordinance in effect.”
Walker mentioned that the city had received a Pickens County Medical Center water bill and received payment for $5,623.11 last month and the balance is $63,869.20.

The Gordo City Council members were all breathing a sigh of relief at the Council meeting this month, on June 4. Mule Day had once again been organized, put on, cleaned up, and touted a success for another year.
With some of the hottest temperatures of the year so far, and the dew point in the mid-70s, the crowd was hot, but there were no heat issues for the emergency departments. “No major incidents,” reported Gordo Police Chief Todd Hall.
