Glasgow City Councilman M.D. Armstrong will not seek a 10th term in November’s election.  His family, business, and a lack of help from fellow council members are some of the reasons Armstrong will be calling it quits after this year.  He tells WCLU News he hopes his announcement to retire will encourage others to serve the city in the capacity he did for 18 years.

Armstrong, of course, mad the announcement at last night’s Glasgow City Council meeting where 3 Department heads gave their annual reports.  Superintendent of Public Works, Kurt Frey, reported on several new projects including the methane gas project which generates free electricity through the landfill, and the new Adopt-A- City Street Program that will help keep the city clean.  His Department mows 12.45 miles worth of city streets and bush hogs over 46 miles of right-of-ways.

 

Cemetery Sexton Paul Bragg gave his report which included 141 burials last year as well as 188 grave spaces sold.  The cost of a space is $500.

 

Also, Director of The Plaza Theatre, Jennifer Moonsong, announced that many of her efforts in the coming year would be focused on the development of “The Marquee Room”.  She tells WCLU News, this will help with some requirements many acts have in order to book the venue.
