Details for the town Christmas celebration was the main focus of the December 10 Durbin Town Council meeting.
The parade was to be held Friday, December 13, at 6 p.m., however, freezing rain that day caused a cancellation of the parade and most of the events.
The icy conditions did not deter Santa Claus who showed up at the Durbin Community Library to hand out presents.
Mark Smith informed council on the Bartow and Frank sewer project. He said there would be lift stations at Bartow and Frank and there would be pressure on the line. He further stated the Infrastructure and Job Development Commission would soon be sending three Binding Commitment Letters to be signed by Mayor Mike Vance. He wanted them signed immediately upon receipt. Council approved a motion for the mayor to sign the documents.
Councilman Don Jennings’ motion for Vance to sign for rights-of-way on Durbin owned property for the Bartow and Frank sewer line was also approved by council.
The mayor announced that the annual Christmas Lighting contest will be held December 20 from dark to 10 p.m.
Members of the Durbin Days Heritage Festival Committee will be the judges. First place will be awarded $75, second $50 and third $25.
