Phillips said he would talk to the library staff and see if the Internet could be turned off when the library is closed.

“There has to be a way to just shut it off,” Phillips said. “I don’t mind people using the thing but it is getting out of hand.”

Resident Ruth Neighbors asked the council to look into getting her neighborhood cleaned up. “There’s a big pecan tree in that alley that, if a hurricane comes, is going to fall on my house.”

Neighbors said she looked into having the tree removed, but since it is not on her property she could not have it cut down. Another nearby property has an abandoned and condemned mobile home parked on it and Neighbors said she would like to see that property cleaned up as well.

Phillips said the council would look into the matter and see what could be done.
