BONIFAY — Due to Nov. 11 being Veterans’ Day the Bonifay City Council approved of canceling their regularly scheduled meeting during their Oct. 28 meeting.

Police Chief Chris Wells informed the council that he had been receiving numerous complaints about parking along the west side of Oklahoma Street between Iowa Street and Nebraska Street.

“You can’t see traffic coming in that area and it’s an accident waiting to happen,” said Wells. “The bank has informed us that they are graciously allowing parking in their parking lot without any restrictions but until we get a ‘no parking’ sign put up we can’t enforce that there should be no parking in that area.”

Council approved of allowing Wells to do whatever is needed to put up signs and enforce the restriction of parking in that area.

Public Works Supervisor Jack Marell informed the council that Federal Emergency Management Agency was going to allow Marell to add replacing a damaged sidewalk at Middlebrooks Park to the park revitalization project.

“Basically they’ll be moving that ditch out a few feet, reinforce it and then replace the sidewalk,” he said. “Hopefully that will do away with the erosion issue that’s caused the damage in the first place.”

Council discussed local clean up efforts at residents’ houses and Wells told him that all those in need of cleaning have been issued letters and they will continue taking steps needed to enforce the code.
