Council approves purchase of industrial park land

The ordinance would require that groups collecting money be registered with the state and following state ordinances.

“This ordinance makes it a violation of city law if a group violates the state requirements,” City Attorney Michelle Taggart said on June 6.

“If they come back talking about the President can we run them out of here?” the mayor asked.

“Not necessarily,” Taggart said.

“What this will do is make our code match what the state ordinance says,” Miner said.

The council also approved on Tuesday the purchase a 5.25 acre parcel of industrial park property back from Chipola Timber Harvesting Inc. for the price of $23,500.

Miner said the purchase price was “an excellent deal” for the city.
