Mills said t-shirts for the event are on sale now at the Chamber of Commerce for $15.
Council members also agreed to annex 415 acres of property west of Zachary clearing the way for the Americana development.
Additionally, an ordinance was introduced that would create the Economic Developement District within the City of Zachary for Americana, a traditional neighborhood development that would include residential, commercial and civic space.
The EDD would oversee a one-cent sales tax levied by Americana which would be used to fund improvement projects that would beautify and solidify the infrastructure in the city.
All of the Zachary City Council members agreed to annex the property, however Councilman Dan Wallis voted against the ordinance that would create the EDD.
The Council also agreed to add a contingency to the site plans for the new Dollar General location on PLank Road next to the Shell gas station. The contingency states that if and when the property is purchased next to Dollar General, the new owners must contact Dollar General to work out a maintenance agreement for the parking lot. The site plan, as its stands now, has a shared access with the property next to it.
Other items on the Council's agenda included:
The addition of three houses were added to the City's condemnation list. Structures located at 4568 Avenue C, 4736 and 4759 Avenue F have all been deemed condemnable by Scott Masterson, city building inspector. Masterson said issues concerning the properties include exposure to the elements, wild vegetation growth, decay, graffiti and broken windows.
The next condemnation hearing is set for Tuesday, Oct. 18.
Mayor David Amrhein said East Baton Rouge Mayor Kip Holden would do his best to find the $800,000 needed to complete the McHost Road project.
"The city of Zachary will kick in the remaining $200,000 needed," Amrhein said.
The next City Council meeting will be held Tuesday, Oct. 25, at 6:30 p.m.
