Havelock makes adjustments to park gun rules

Published: Tuesday, November 26, 2013 at 05:41 PM.

The new rules, passed unanimously, means the city can’t prohibit a property owner from possessing a firearm or ammunition on his property in a state of emergency.

Mayor Jimmy Sanders had been on vacation and was unable to return in time for the meeting, while Commissioner George Liner had a previously scheduled event and was also unable to attend the meeting.

In other business on Monday night, the board:

-- agreed to forgive a balance shortfall of $5,959 for the 2013 National Night Out and allowed the police department to hold onto the money as startup funds for the 2014 event.

-- awarded a contract for $11,773.13 to PowerHouse Electrical to install an automatic transfer switch to control the generator in the event of a power loss at the Havelock Senior Center.

-- Heard from newly hired city manager Frank Bottorff that a groundbreaking for the new Havelock city hall building could be in the second week of December, but the date hasn’t been nailed down.
