It took the Carmi City Council just four minutes to zip through an abbreviated agenda during the group's July 6 meeting. Only three items were handled during the meeting. Alderman Mike Knight was absent.

Aldermen unanimously approved a $19,154 payment to the engineering firm of Brown & Roberts for work they performed at the municipal airport. The payment was for engineering work in association with the parking lot and related improvements at the airport.

The council approved Ordinance #1576 which amends the territory of the Carmi/White County/Edwards County Enterprise Zone. 

Resolution 07.06.21 was passed which was an amendment to the same Enterprise Zone. 

There were no reports from standing committees or the mayor. Members did take time to praise the organizers of this year's Fourth of July fireworks show, commenting it was one of the best shows in many years.
