The Carrollton City Council approved an ordinance and a resolution during a special meeting Monday.
Council members heard the second reading of an ordinance to establish an early retirement incentive program for city employees throughout 2013. The incentive program - discussed during a council meeting last week - will allow a one-time $5,000 retirement incentive for employees with 20 years or more of service to the city.
An employee must submit a formal letter of retirement to the city to be eligible for the incentive program.
The Council also approved a resolution authorizing Carrollton Mayor Gene McMurry to enter into a contract with Freedom Fireworks for the July 4 fireworks display at Point Park.
Carrollton City Clerk-Treasurer Leatha Grimes said the Council approved the purchase of the fireworks during last week's council meeting, but the council approved the resolution to make sure everything was official.
At last week's meeting, Council members chose to increase the fireworks display to 750 shells, an increase of nearly 200 shells from last year.
"I'd just like it to be a little bit bigger and better this year," McMurry said during the March 25 meeting.
This year's fireworks package will cost $15,500, but the city has planned nearly $25,000 in the upcoming budget for the July 4 celebration.
The one-day event will also include entertainment by T.G. Shepherd and Kelly Lang.
