At Monday’s regular council meeting, the council members only discussed areas that they would like to focus on to get the town looking presentable and have one person come in and spread the good word.
Council member Michael Thomas mentioned having the mural repainted on Main Street as well as having some buildings repainted.
The group discussed possibly having some students from the school help out as well as any fund raising to get some money rolling in.

The council members will keep this on their plate and come up with concrete plans and ideas to make downtown Whitmire more approachable and talked about more.
