Published December 19, 2007
The Brooksville City Council on Monday took the following actions:
- City Council gave City Manager Jennene Norman-Vacha an early Christmas present, a $5,000 pay raise, increasing her annual salary to $85,000. Her contract with the council allowed a merit increase after her first six months, and the council unanimously agreed to that increase.
- The council unanimously approved a code exemption to the Mural Society to begin its next mural on Liberty Street on the wall of a building known as the Antique Mall. Work on the painting, which will depict a livery stable, is expected to begin soon.
- Council members agreed to monitor a project proposed at the northern end of the city limits that would, if approved by the county, bring a mining operation close to the line. A resident brought the topic to the council Monday. City development services director Bill Geiger said he has been monitoring it.
