Rainelle Council Holds Meeting The possibility of designating two-way traffic on Fifth Street be- tween Greenbrier Avenue and Main Street was discussed by the Rainelle Town Council at its May 14 meeting at Town Hall. Proponents from Center Chevrolet said the change would result in easier ac- cess to their business. Mayor John Hill directed the Traffic Committee to investigate the proposal and to re- port at the next meeting. In other business, the Council approved the deeding of an alley near Fifth Street to Bryant Associ- ates for $100. The firm owns Center Chevrolet and is using the property for expansion. Tri-County Furniture was awarded a contract for replacing the Police Department carpeting with tile. The company bid $999.99 for the job. The only other bid was for $1,100 from Kenneth Brackman Construction Company. No dates are set for the beginning or comple- tion of the work. The next meeting of the Council will be May 28, 7 p.m., at Town Hall. Funeral Home Going on public aid? Consult us for your PRE-NEED Charles L.
