At their monthly meeting on June 12, the Canton City Council learned that a first-ever BBQ Cook-Off is one of the fun events in the planning stages for this summer’s “Canton Day Off,” scheduled for August 16-18, 2013. Other events being planned include an all-town picture on Main Street, a softball tournament, a street dance from 4-12 pm, and a wine-tasting event. The church dinner will be held on Sunday.

Next year’s “Day Off” is already in the planning stages with a possible 5K Run, a teen dance, and live outdoor music.

Other Council Business:

• The Audit was presented for further review.

• On July 10, at 6:30 pm, there will be a public meeting regarding the wellhead project. (followed by the monthly City Council meeting at 7 pm)

• Street repair work, delayed by the spring and early summer rains, is now in progress.

• The painting of the Canton Water Tower is tentatively scheduled for the spring of 2014.

• Bids have been received for the painting of the museum, which was last painted in 2007.

• Discussion was held concerning the future of the Liquor Store—some interest is being shown in the property/business.
