The Childersburg Council Tuesday night met for the first time with new Councilwoman Angesa “Angie” Twymon on the panel. Twymon took the oath of office at the beginning of the meeting, and now represents Ward C. The seat became vacant in early December, when former councilwoman Bonnie Carter pleaded guilty to federal charges of bank fraud and money laundering.

Childersburg’s Avenue of Flags displayed along U.S. 280 during patriotic holidays will look fresh and respectful, after the City Council agreed to buy 48 new flags for just over $1,000. City Clerk Sandra Donahoo said some of the city’s existing flags had become faded and tattered, and it was time for an update.

The council also:

Appointed Billy Lester to represent the council on the city’s Planning Commission, replacing Carter. Twymon declined the opportunity to serve on the commission because she could not regularly be available for its meeting times.

Reappointed Marcus Marbury to a five-year term on the Parks and Recreation Board.

Heard a report from Council President Jimmy Payne about the Childersburg Historical Preservation Commission’s annual Mardi Gras Gala, coming up Feb. 22 at Bella Luna Events Center. Tickets are $30 each, and proceeds will benefit the Butler-Harris-Rainwater Museum.

Heard a corrected report from Donahoo, who said at the last meeting that the city’s utility franchise tax payment would be $12,000 less than budgeted. She said the $12,000 difference actually goes in the city’s favor.

Heard citizen concerns about a broken water pipe at a residence on Childersburg-Fayetteville Highway and about the condition of roads in Killough Heights.

Approved invoices.

The council meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. at City Hall.
