The Carrollton City Council gathered Monday, June 1st for a regular session.

The Carrollton City Council gathered Monday evening with a relatively light agenda.

There was discussion with a local resident about a neighbor’s violation of a nuisance ordinance along with reports from the chiefs of the police and fire departments.

Mayor Bryan Mathis gave a report on the progress of work on the East Benton Street Bridge.

That bridge was inspected early in May and found to have severe deterioration in the support beams, prompting the weight load to be reduced.

Council also approved the lowest bid for two sets of body armor for new officers joining the force.

Fire Chief Lonnie Sensenich also spoke about Carrollton’s plans for the Independence Day Celebration.
