The council also agreed to research a way to get the local library opened back up.

“After looking around I never realized how much that place has helped people,” said French. “Mostly children but a lot of good was coming out of that place and we should see what we can do to get it up and running again.”

The council approved of reimbursing a volunteer $60 in gas money to pick up the town’s commodities from Shepherd’s Gate Church.

French asked whom they would get to help retrieve the commodities coming in on Sept. 20, which is food reserved for almost 600 families in Caryville.

“We’ll just have to find someone who needs the community service hours,” said Chambers.

French requested that the council reevaluate the town hall employees.

“We’ve got one here that we pay her $590 per month and I don’t understand why she’s even on the payroll,” said French. “We’re drowning and scrimping for change and if there was someone at my job that didn’t show they wouldn’t have that position for long.”
