(BEDFORD) - Bedford North Lawrence soccer player Andy Brinegar was presented with the Mayor's Choice award at the Bedford City Council meeting Tuesday night.

In other business:
The city council vacated an unapproved right away at 135 Edgewood Drive to Stephen Ray. Ray is selling the property and the new owners want to build a garage.
The council did an additional appropriation of $9,100 to the Bedford Police Department so they can paint the departments Hummer and equip a police cruiser. The money was left over from an insurance claim after police vehicles were damaged during a spring hail storm.
The council also approved the transferring of $30,000 to the highway department so they can replace the roof on the Street Department at 14th and H streets. The roof has not been replaced in more than 20 years. The job will be awarded to a Bedford contractor.
The council also discussed blocking off the neighborhood near 14th Street next Halloween because of the number of trick-or-treaters and concerns someone may be hit by a car.
