board positions open for Milan park
At the December 14 Milan Town Council
meeting it was announced that there are currently two board positions
that will need to be filled on the park board. The announcement
was made by Angela Beck, Milan park board president.
Beck also announced the formation of the Fourth of July committee
with the first meeting to be held on January 17 at 2 p.m. She
said the committee will continue to meet on the third Sunday of
the month to coordinate and plan the annual festivities.

In response to a request made by the council at the November meeting,
Dr. Timothy Alward, Nashville, provided a proposal which outlines
projects for clean up to his property next to the town hall on
Carr Street. The board unanimously agreed to request a $50,000
bond as part of the agreement to the proposal.
In the month of November, the Milan Police Department investigated
two thefts, one vehicle theft and three crashes. There were 33
traffic stops, 22 assists to other agencies, and 54 calls for
service. The reserve officers donated 101 hours, according to
Marshal Gary Skaggs.
In other business, Marianne Wiggers was re-appointed to the Rising
Sun Regional Foundation as representative for the town of Milan.
A raise of 2.5% for town employees was unanimously approved. Council
president Paul Hildebrand noted that the raise was lower from
previous years due to cuts in the budget.
Board members in attendance included Paul Hildebrand and Robert
Branigan, with Matt Huffman absent. The next meeting will be held
on Monday, January 11 beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Milan Town
