Written by Jerry E. Halmon   

The City of Denmark received an “unqualified opinion” on its audit financial statement for the last 12 months ending June 30th 2013. “It’s the best opinion you can get,” City of Denmark Finance Director Rusty Munoz told Denmark City Council members at their November 18, regular monthly meeting. Munoz noted the report had no “material deficiencies or significant weaknesses.” Munoz commented that last year the city had a net decrease in assets, but this year saw a net increase of slightly over $1 million because of several grants the city received.

Mayor Gerald Wright commended the people who “got us where we are” in regards to the city’s financial standing. In the fire department report it was reported the DFD responded to 14 fire calls during the month. On average 10 members attend training meetings, nine members attend business meetings, eight members on average respond per fire call and 22 members are on the roster.

Police Chief Leroy Grimes reported the Denmark Police Department created 73 new case files from October 21- November 18. Case files included armed robbery, a number of burglary and breaking and entering cases, vandalism of property and a large number of traffic cases. Chief Grimes noted that there were “no problems” during the Voorhees College Homecoming this year and Halloween “went well.”

In the public works department report it was noted that the department repaired eight leaks and the department will be working with DHEC to certify the lab were no problems are expected.

Denmark City Council members approved the awarding of a contract to Skip Welch Construction, Inc. of Orangeburg, SC for $21,370 to make repairs to the inside ceiling of the roof of the Dane Theater.

In his mayor’s report Mayor Wright said the City of Denmark Veterans Day Program Saturday was “ a very nice event and an excellent program.” The mayor said he would like to see Veterans Day become a “standard event” and expressed his appreciation to Diana Davis Bailey for her work in coordinating the program.

During the public comments portion of Monday night’s meeting council members heard a presentation from Elroy Johnson, who is president of the senior class at Voorhees College. Johnson told council members about a business program at Voorhees called ENACTUS, whose goal is hunger relief. Robinson said he needed help and assistance for the program and wanted to collaborate with the city of Denmark and raise funds for the senior class at Voorhees College as well.
