Staff Writer

Reflecting a 10 percent increase over last year, the Brooks Town Council has approved spending $157,800 in fiscal year 2000.

The operating budget is set at $74,450, and the library is an additional $29,700.

Separate budgets were set for the Water and Sewer Department at $40,000 and for the Memorial Cemetery at $3,200.

In other agenda items, the council have final approval to the design of Brooks Commemorative Coke Bottle. Committee chairman Caroline Smith said the Coca-Cola company told her that the order of 2000 bottles would be the last “short run” the company would produce. “This makes them even more valuable,” she said, “than we originally thought.”

The bottles are expected to be delivered the first of August. Those who purchased bottles will be notified by postcard.

A new garbage collection company was chosen, the Dependable Waste Services company, in Meansville, Ga., was selected. Its contract assured the 106 Brooks customers that the current price for pickup would be locked in for the next 24 months. The company is owned by Brooks residents Jeff and Karen Matthews.
