Auditor praises Liberty

LIBERTY— Drake Curry of Curry and Associates gave Liberty city council the chance to hear the city’s annual audit report Monday night during council’s monthly meeting at the Rosewood Center.
Curry told council that the city had done an exceptional job.
“It has been an exciting year, and for a town at this time to do this well, I think my hat’s off to you,” Curry said.
Mayor Brian Deese asked that all council members review the report and if questions arose to contact Curry.
In other business, council voted to approve the financing terms for two new police vehicles. The purchase is part of a plan that will see the police department add new cars every other year. The vehicle payments will not show until next year’s budget.
Council also voted to pass an ordinance that will allow the purchase of a new victims advocate vehicle. The funds to purchase the vehicle will come directly from a portion of fines collected in the city.
Liberty City Clerk Sue Woods also announced that a special called Liberty city council meeting will be held on Monday, Feb. 21, beginning at 5:45 p.m. at the Rosewood Center.
