Liberty City Council dealt with two issues in open session at its May 8 meeting and a discussion in closed session to consider the purchase of real estate. No action was taken when the council came out of closed session.

Council members voted to begin the process of annexing three properties into the city — the Liberty Water Tank property on South U.S. 127, property the Liberty-Casey County Economic Development Authority owns behind Liberty Water Tank, and property Mark Wolford owns leading up to the city’s new water tank. City attorney G. Davis Wilson will draft an ordinance for the annexations. The city will incur no survey costs.

In other business, the council voted to give Bridget Blake, the city’s new clerk, a $2 an hour raise, bringing her salary to $18.29 an hour. Blake recently assumed the clerk’s duties after Sharleen Bolton resigned last year.

Councilman Andy Lawhorn requested “no big trucks” signs be placed on Allen Street, Whipp Avenue, Trammel Street and Wolford Avenue.
