A swift council meeting held few items for discussion on Tuesday night.

In response to the request of Louie Bluie Board members for donations, the LaFollette City Council approved a $1,000 donation to the festival. The festival will be held at the Cove Lake State Park on June 13.

Next on the agenda was discussion of a library fund. The council approved establishing a bank account for library funds. To fill the account with money, the council unanimously approved to transfer the flea market funds into the library-building fund.

Library Director Nancy Green thanked the council for its support saying while it may disagree on several issues this had been a common ground.

Before approving two ordinances the council approved a proclamation declaring April 2009 as, “Paint up, clean up, fix up month”.

The proclamation is part of a yearly initiative by the city to revitalize throughout the city limits, said City Administrator David Young.

A resolution to transfer money to the recreation department was also placed before the council. Because of recent improvements made by the recreation department out of the recreation fund, Young recommended transferring two installments of $5,000 back to the recreation department.

The council approved the transfer of funds and adjourned the meeting.
