MUNFORD — The Town Council met Monday evening during a work session, and discovered that what looked like a $100,000 loss in revenue was merely a categorization error.

Auditor Theresa Lackey shared her findings with the council, saying that the budget reflected $100,000 down in revenues over expenses.

“There’s just some classification issues,” Lackey said. “So it’s really not as bad as it looks.”

Lackey recommended t the council use QuickenBooks, a program that could cut down on these errors and cut down on the time it usually takes the Town Clerk Peggy Bussie to enter financial information.

“You can tell she’s putting a lot of time and detail into putting those numbers in there,” Lackey said.

The council also said they are still in the process of finding a company that can cut down and possibly clean up a historic tree that now poses a safety threat after being struck by lightning and fractured.

Mayor Lynn Swinford also announced that the Munford Senior Center was in the clear after being evaluated by the East Alabama Regional Planning and Development Commission.

Councilman David Dabbs announced the basketball season could be called off due to a leak that is causing the floor to buckle beneath one of the goals.

A member of the Munford High School Football Alumni came to ask for the council’s support as they prepare for their upcoming season.

He said that about 30 men are already apart of the alumni team, and their years span from 1980 to 2012.
