The Denver City City Council met in a very short 20-minute meeting, which included an Executive Session, Monday night where they took care of a short agenda.

After the Invocation by Councilman Robert Hanneman and the pledge to the flag led by Mayor Tommy Hicks, the Council moved on to the announcements. Councilman Clinton Bowman addressed the new Chief of Police David Hennigan and welcomed him to Denver City. He informed the new Chief the Council will be working hand in hand with him along with City Manager Stan David on any future issues that he may be addressing.

Moving into the agenda the Council approved a request from First Baptist Church to close the 300 block of N. Ave E from the alley to 4th Street on October 31, 2018. The area in question is an area between their bus barn and the main church. The Council unanimously approved the request. Following this item, the Council went into Executive Session concerning an appointment to an open board position and an issue with some city property.

Coming out of Executive Session Councilmember Joan Breith made a motion to appointment Amber Powell to the Board of Adjustment. Councilman Mark Sherman seconded the motion and it was unanimously approved by the Council. Powell will be replacing Pat Curtis who will soon be moving to Olney.  Also in the last item on the agenda, the Council unanimously approved the payment of bills that totaled $80,651.48.
