HANCEVILLE — Local residents who have unwanted items cluttering their garages or are looking for bargains are invited to attend Hanceville’s first city-wide yard sale.
The Hanceville City Council established May 23 as the date for the community-wide yard sale during their regular meeting Thursday.
Residents are encouraged to hold yard sales either in their own yards or at the C.W. Day Park. Mayor Kenneth Nail said participants would not have to register with the city to participate. He added that the city’s standard yard sale fee would be waved during the event. No tables or chairs will be provided.
“Just show up and bring your goodies,” Nail said.
Nail said the council approved the event as a way to promote the city and bring people to the area.
“Hopefully they’ll spend some money and maybe eat lunch here,” Nail said. “We’re just trying to bring something good for the area.”
During the meeting, the council also renamed Field 1 at C.W. Day Park as the “Ray Mattox Memorial Field.”
Nail said Ray Mattox was a Hanceville resident who recently passed away.
“We’re doing this due to all his years of dedicated service to the parks and recreation and to the citizens,” Nail said.
In other business the council:
‰ purchased a $150 ad for the Cullman County Sports Hall of Fame.
‰ purchased a 2004 Crown Victoria for $8,700 to replace a wrecked Hanceville Police patrol vehicle. Insurance covered $8,400 of the purchase.
‰ agreed to hold a public meeting, which is required by the state before the council can apply for a Community Development Block Grant for sewer system repairs.
