The city of Summerville met yesterday afternoon in its regular monthly work session for July. Nell Farrar reported that the Better Hometown Farm Day was a great success and that next year it may be moved to October. In discussing events occurring at Dowdy Park in the fall, it was noted that the Tillotson Grant is being used to purchase an antique pump for the park. Also, there was an inquiry about a possible security camera for the park area. Linda Espy spoke concerning the annual Victorian Christmas celebration and offered tentative dates for the Annual Christmas Parade – December 1 – and Christmas in the Park – December 4 and 5. Ms. Espy asked for help finding a meeting place for the group working to help downtown businesses decorate for the Christmas festivities. It was announced that the Chamber of Commerce Luncheon will be held at noon on July 22nd at the new break room at the Depot. In administrative items, the council discussed the request to implement a limited downtown parking permit. The idea was tabled for further study as there was a concern at how such a rule would be enforced. There was praise for the July 4th festivities held by the city, and it was pointed out that the weekly “Pickin’ in the Park” sessions have been a great success. Next month’s work session and council meeting is scheduled for Monday, August 11th.
