Pictured are the members of the Hornbeck Town Council on Monday, May 7, minus Councilman Lance Ellis who was experiencing the meeting via FaceTime from Texas where he is receiving chemotherapy treatment. He joked that he was disappointed to have missed such a short meeting.

Council members expressed their thoughts and prayers are with Ellis. The Hornbeck Town Council voted at their meeting on Monday, May 7, to help out the local senior center. “They want us to remove shuffle board building to include the slab,” Mayor Clarence Beebe said. “It’s been a flooding issue. They want us to cut some swell ditches from the back side out to the road and address the large culvert on the other end. Something’s gotta be done.” A special meeting for the vote on the 2018-19 budget will be held at 5:45 p.m. on June 4 at Town Hall.
