“Municipal leaders strive for excellence in the governance of their city, town or village, and commit themselves to providing quality services, governing effectively and working to improve the quality of life for their communities,” Conley said. “Several terms in office is a high compliment voters give to an official, and with these years of experience comes a strengthening of wisdom, discernment and strong leadership skills that brings tremendous value to the municipal governments of Florida.”

In other business, the town council approved the adoption of the 2013-14 budget, and approved resolutions allowing the engineering firm Preble-Rish to seek grants for improvements at the Possum Palace and George M. Rogers Park on the town’s behalf.

“We want to do some upgrades at the Possum Palace, redo the roads, upgrade the lighting and maybe build an exercise trail,” said Mayor B.J. Phillips.

“At Rogers Park, we want to try and get a grant to improve the size of the skate park, upgrade the little pavilion and the ball park a little bit,” he added.

Preble-Rish was also tasked by the council with preparing and submitting two projects to the Water Management grant Cycle for a pumping station to increase pressure on Pioneer Road West, and a pumping station on Mud Hill Road to allow water service to Washington County Public Works.

The council also set the town’s Halloween hours for 5 to 7 p.m. on Oct. 31.
