The dissolution of Macks Creek's assets continue in Camden County. The amount left in the city's Road and Bridge Budget when the city dissolved was $294.56. Since the money in the account must be used for road and bridge use, the money was ordered by the courts to be transferred to the county's Road and Bridge account. During a commission meeting on Tuesday, the commissioners present, Thom Gumm and Kris Franken, voted to approve the transfer. Macks Creek's roads will now be maintained by the county.
Macks Creek officially ceases to exist as a municipality. Camden county commissioners voted to pass the resolution officially disincorporating the city of Macks Creek on Thursday, August 16. The resolution made its way to the commission following the Aug. 7 election when more than 69% of voters elected to dissolve the city.
The resolution appointed Charles McElyea as Macks Creeks' trustee. McElyea's next step will be to hold auctions in order to finish liquidating the City Hall building and property along with miscellaneous items. According to McElyea, sealed bids on the real estate must be received by 5 p.m. on Dec. 20. The sale of the personal property will be at Macks Creek City Hall on Dec. 21 starting at 9 a.m. The City Park nor nine Dell computers that the City attained from a grant are not for sale at this time.
The Lake Sun previously reported that McElyea hoped there was enough money in the city's accounts to pay off debts. As of Dec. 4, McElyea said that all bills have been paid except an AT&T bill, an attorney fee statement incurred by the City for a lawsuit filed and a judgement to Krehbiel Engineering. McElyea also has not been fully paid for time incurred as the city's Trustee.
The land that once was the city of Macks Creek is now unincorporated much like county land in Montreal, Hugo and Decaturville.
