INDEPENDENCE — The Town of Independence office on Main Street recently received a new awning and now the building will soon have a mural painted on the side.
After discussion at the July 12 meeting, Council Member Jason Cassell made the motion to employ Charles Akers to paint the mural at a total cost not to exceed $2,500, with the labor not exceeding $1,900. The motion passed unanimously.
No date was given as to when work will begin on the mural.
