The council authorized Mayor Gene McMurry to advertise for an independent contractor to provide oversight services for the campground. McMurry plans to place an advertisement stating the duties and responsibilities of the overseer. From the responses, he expects to know what an overseer will cost. The council hopes to find someone who wants to live at the campground for free and accept discounted pay for the work they do.
The council also authorized McMurry to enter into a contract with Gradient Shift Advertising and Web Design for a website for the campground. The invoice for designing the website stated the cost will be $1,750.
