Red Bud Council held special meeting Monday

Following their committee meetings on Monday night, the Red Bud City Council held a special meeting where they approved of two items.

First was approval to pay for the materials for a concrete pad for the Red Bud VFW’s memorial to go at Ratz Memorial Park, with cost not to exceed $3,700.

The VFW was recently notified that they would be getting an M44 self-propelled Howitzer through the U.S. Army Donation Program. While the M44 is free, the cost of moving it here from Virginia and then displaying it here is not.
