Vernon council considers yard sale ordinance

The WIC office has moved from the Vernon Library to City Hall, Hendrix reported.

“Now all we need to do is get a sign up for them on the door,” she said. “They are happy, and they say this is the most room they have ever had.”

Hendrix said the council should thank Washington County employees for helping to move the WIC office.

Fire Chief Tim Barnes also reported that the fire department is planning to hold a Catfish Round-Up this year instead of a turkey shoot to raise funds for the department.

“We’ve about done the turkey shoot to death, so we want to try something new this year,” he said. The catfish roundup is a fishing tournament that takes place overnight, and contestants pay a boat fee, then the ones who catch the biggest fish get prizes.

“They had one over in Caryville this weekend and it was really successful,” Barnes said.

The Vernon Catfish Round-Up will be held Aug. 30. For more information, contact Barnes at 703-9801.
