Branford Town Council meeting

February roundup

Branford — Sparkleberry Society

Carolyn Saft of the Suwannee Extension Office of the Sparkleberry Native Plant Society wants to use Hatch Park Community Center at no cost for any of their upcoming functions this year.

“Just to let you know we are providing services to the community,” said Saft. “We have monthly programs and field trips, tree give-a-ways.”

Daniel said that he thought it was a good idea and entertained a motion to allow the society to use the park. The vote was unanimous.

Revision to personnel policy

Some revisions were to be made to the personnel policy that was currently in place as there was little to no difference in full-time and part-time benefits. It was agreed that it would be re-written and voted upon.

Lastly, Councilwoman Alice Childress read a proclamation that stated the Town of Branford recognizes military men and women and their families by declaring that April 17 would be Military Family and Community Covenant Day. The proclamation was a heart-felt reminder of the courage and sacrifice that military personnel and their families give to us to secure our country’s freedom. The council were all in agreement to sign the proclamation.
