The Caryville Board of Mayor and Aldermen began its meeting Monday night with Alderman Mike Miller revealing more details of an upcoming festival to be held July 15,16 and 17.

He requested permission to close Main Street off to traffic from the Caryville Surplus Building moving up the street . Miller said the city wouldn’t incur any cost for the festival.

Vice- Mayor Wade Lawson presented an auditing contract of $15,295 from Brown, Jake and McDaniel, PC for the 2010-11 audit.  Lawson said if the board wishes to seek service from a new firm in the future to possibly obtain a cheaper rate that approximately six months prior to contract approval will be needed in order to obtain proposals from other auditing groups. 

Alderman Mark Stanley next requested the board allow payment of a police department invoice to SpeedTech Lights for $1,519.40 for lights for the new police vehicles. The funding is to come from the part of loan to equip the new vehicles, the purchase order reflects the funding will be provided through the drug fund. Stanley also requested the board allow a payment of $626.64 to Wal-Mart to purchase three cameras and memory cards for the police department; that purchase was to also be paid from the drug fund. Later in the meeting, Stanley requested $3,790 to be transferred from the general fund to the drug fund. When funding was received for the Governors Highway Safety Grant, it was received into the general fund. The transfer is to cover costs for cameras recently purchased from the drug fund. 

In the final business of the night, the board approved a roadblock for Stony Fork Volunteer Department on June 4 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
