The Elkton Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved the financial, fire, and police reports.
The police report included 34 citations including 30 for speeding, two for financial responsibility, one for failure to stop at a stop sign, and one for an unregistered vehicle. Seven total warnings were issued, and one arrest.
The fire report showed structure fires on Briar Patch and Ardmore Ridge roads, four vehicle accidents, one lockout, and one grass fire off I-65.
The board passed a motion to purchase a camera system for the recycling center to address recent issues with inappropriate item disposal.
The issue was glass bottles being dumped in with recycling and has resulted in a risk of the city potentially losing the use of the site for recycling if the problem continues.
A resolution was passed to request the Giles County Commission to approve the Giles County Highway Department to perform work within the city of Elkton.
