CARYVILLE – Caryville Town Council reviewed the policy for the town’s flea market after a few discrepancies were pointed out recently and approved of changes during their regular meeting on May 13.

Council approved of adding that when someone wants to hold a yard sale on the town’s property within the area of the flea market that there will be a $6 fee enforced; that payment will be required upon arrival, deleting the option of waiting until the end of the day to pay for setting up and will be denied any future usage for any violators who refuse payment; and amended that Caryville Flea Market Supervisor Paron Beeco would be only responsible for money given to him and not money owed.

  • Beeco thanked the council for the additional booths added to the flea market and informed them that they will be holding a barbeque plate sale for $5 a plate on May 24, with a tribute to veterans to raise fund for advertising for the next Flea Across Florida.
  • Resident Shane Burton came to voice his concerns with the town’s garbage truck leaving glass on his drive way and local dogs tearing trash bags and scattering garbage.
  • Resident Alex Thompson came before the Council to introduce himself as the new owner of the compound formally known as the Caryville Work Camp, explaining that the new purpose is a ministry to help rehabilitate men into clean, healthy lifestyles with optional vocational skills taught, though sex offenders will not be welcome.
  • Chair Henry Chambers encouraged the Council to think about various means of selling the town’s old garbage truck and fire truck.
  • Council member Milard French inquired about mosquito spraying and he was informed that there hasn’t been a mosquito spraying for a while due to the latest requirement restraints.
  • Chambers informed the Council that the town’s expenditures for gasoline should be regularly monitored with Pay Orders.
  • Council discussed various ways to seal the Caryville Civic Center’s roof with the final agreement to find quotes on prices for cool-seal.

The next regularly scheduled meeting of the Caryville Town Council is set for 6 p.m. on June 10.
