Lyerly will celebrate its youth athletes on Saturday.
Recreation Day will begin with a parade at 10 a.m. The parade will start at Lyerly School and end at McLeod Park. At the park, kids will be treated to free hot dogs and drinks. They’ll be able to play on two water slides.
“We’re inviting everyone who played recreation ball, including basketball, and their siblings to participate,” said Lyerly Mayor Josh Wyatt.
Other items included:
* Wyatt told the council that a Lyerly property owner had questioned the town’s responsibility for a tree in the right-of-way falling onto a rental property and doing significant damage. The house was at the corner of Hammond Street and Chattooga Avenue. Wyatt said the town’s insurance company considered the incident an “act of God” and said the town was not liable. 
* Councilman Robert Thompson told council he believed a property on Railroad Avenue had been sold. The property includes a house which was badly damaged by a falling tree in November. Council had received several complaints about the property from neighbors. Wyatt said the town would “keep an eye on the property” and hoped the new owner would clear the lot.  
* Council voted unanimously to pass the amended 2015 budget. The amended budget included three revenue items which were added.
* Construction of a 25x50 feet extension to the Fire Hall started on Monday. The building will house the town’s new rescue vehicle. 
* Council set Sept. 24 as the date for the town’s annual Down Home Day celebration. Vendor permits are available now for $15.  Anyone needing access to electricity is urged to sign up quickly as connections are limited. 
* Mayor Wyatt said he drove past the kayak launch where the Coosa River Basin Initiative (CRBI) was hosting a guided paddle of the Chattooga River and saw “at least 40 kayaks.” The town recently completed its kayak trail.
