The Goodrich City Council was not able to hold their regular meeting Thursday, instead pushing the Gathering to next week. The council did not have enough members present to form a quorum.
Alderman Richard booth suffered a stroke a few months ago and is now in hospice care in Arkansas. Alderman Mary Orozco recently had surgery that has left her paralyzed from the neck down.
The council will reschedule their regular meeting for August. The date selected is for 6 p.m. Tuesday in Goodrich City Hall.
Goodrich Mayor Kelly Nelson told the Enterprise that the Goodrich Fire Department is hoping to plan a fun day for the community in October
“The week of Oct. 14 is fire prevention week,” the mayor explained. “The fire department wants to have it at city hall in front of the fire trucks. They want to have the sheriff’s department come and do fingerprinting with the kids to give them ID cards. They are going to have Smokey the Bear for pictures, and it is a fundraiser for the fire department. They are going to have barbecue sandwiches (for sale) and stuff like that. I think they’re going to have a couple of other people there as well.”
