Hundred Town Council decided at their April 21 meeting to hold the annual Independence Day festivities on July 4th, the actual holiday.
Hundred will hold their annual Independence Day activities on the actual holiday this year. The antique cars in the parade is always popular.
This year the holiday falls on a Friday, which Recorder Sherry Hayes thought would be good timing.
"I think we should do the evening thing again," said Hayes. "Then they have the rest of the weekend if they want to do other things."
She said the account for the event has about $7,000 in it and It takes about $5,000 for the fireworks. "It does a good show," said Hayes of the fireworks allotment.
"I think we'll be okay," said Hayes of the finances. However, she said after this year one they might need to do a fund raiser for the event.
In other matters, council approved the payment of repairs on the town's garbage truck totaling over $4,000.
Also, the town workers have ground down and painted one side of the garbage truck. "It looks good," said Mayor Charles Sine, who added they will be doing the other side and then it will look like new.
Finally, there has reportedly been some talk about town that the fire ordinance fee is a donation. Hayes refuted that, saying, "If you don't pay it, you will be sued in magistrate court."
