Town Council extends sympathy

August 15, 2014/Charlotte Evans
  With the town’s flag at half mast, The Rural Hall Town Council opened its meeting with a moment of silence in memory of the late Mayor Pro Tem Herman Denny, who served the community for 13 years.
  A proclamation was given to the Denny family expressing the town’s sincere sympathy while recognizing Denny for his years of service to the community and the town.
In other business:
  Council members adopted a revised flag policy, stating flags will be flown at the Hwy 65/66 intersection upon request of a family member on the day of the funeral for current or former citizens. Also, American flags on town property will be flown half-staff upon the death of a councilmember or staff, current or former.
  Mayor Larry Williams and Town Manager Frank James informed the council that discussions continue with Stokes County Commissioners about the fire department budget. Last month, the commissioners did not approve the Rural Hall Fire Department’s tax rate that increased one-cent in July.
  “We‘re working through some things; it’s just taking some time” James stated.
  The town council recognized Al and Barbara Fredericks for being named as the Garden Spot of the World’s Yard of the Month for August 2014 recipients.
