The Valley Grande City Council meeting was filled with several subjects.

The entire council was present: Mayor Wayne Labbe, council members Kay Davidson, Sara Day, Bruce Hughes, Jane Harris, Robby Rose, and clerk/treasurer Kim Harris.

The council heard a request from Brian Williamson to subdivide land along Highway 22 near Dogwood Lane and a piece of land on County Road 240.

The properties meet Valley Grande city requirements, which Johnson told the council the remaining piece would do so.

Letters will be sent out to the property owners this week. A public hearing with the subdivision property owners will be held on December 19 at 7 p.m.

The other big news was Kim Harris receiving a Master for Municipal Clerk plaque from the University of Alabama.

Kim Harris said she was blessed and honored to receive the award. She was attending clerk school.

“We’re so proud of Kim, she does a great job for us,” Labbe said.
