Priceville to sell bricks for County Veterans Memorial

The Town of Priceville is selling memorial bricks to help raise money to build the Morgan County Veterans Memorial.

Councilman Tommy Perry announced at the Priceville Town Council meeting Oct. 12 that they are selling four-inch by eight-inch bricks for $75 and eight-inch by eight-inch bricks for $125. The memorial bricks will have inscriptions for memorials or any other short messages.

“You can let it be a memorial to anyone. It doesn’t matter whether they were in the military or not,” Perry said.

Mayor Melvin Duran added that the messages should be within reason.

“We do reserve the right to approve those messages before they are inscribed on the bricks,” Duran said. “But most everything within reason will be accepted.”

On July 4, the town broke ground on the memorial and has been looking for funding to begin construction on the facility.

Duran said they are looking for donations of money and in-kind work to get the project completed.

“We need about $200,000 of in-kind donations,” Duran said.

In other business, the council:

• approved paying the town’s bills totaling $71,703.51.

• paid $150 in dues to the Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association for fiscal year 2012.

• will pay $102.74 in lodging and travel expenses for city librarian Paula Hensley to attend the APLS Administration meeting Oct. 19-20 in Montgomery.

• accepted the low bid of $54,028.54 from Flagship Contracting Services, LLC for the force main sewer serving Shoal Creek Road.

• approved the donation from Reliance Insurance for the 753 Bobcat F-series loader.

• will spend $11,000 to begin construction on a road that will connected Marco Drive to Bethel Road. This money will help to pay for drainage.
