It's a very labor-intensive process, he added. McGrevey said they are still in the process of searching for a new CFO. That job has been open since February when the mayor fired long-time CFO Ed Skipper.
In other action, the council gave the go-ahead to apply for a Community Development Block Grant for up to $600,000 to provide funding needed to replace the Old Highway 80 bridge over Okatibbee Creek. The bridge closed recently and the grant would require a 50 percent match from the city and possibly some work or funds from the county.
The council also approved changing the city's subdivision rules to require sidewalks in subdivisions.
