MOULTRIE -- Moultrie's Spence Field may once again see Air Force action.

City manager Bob Hopkins said that the Moody Air Force Base hopes to use the air strip for touch-and-go landing exercises.

On Tuesday, the City Council will consider a joint use agreement for Spence Field which would serve as an auxiliary field for the 479th Flying Training group.

Hopkins said that the Air Force hopes to eventually build a fire station and two observation structures at Spence Field.

All of the construction will be at the Air Force's expense.

Plans are for the agreement to be long-term with a possible land-lease agreement from the city.

Other items on the council's agenda:

Trinity Baptist Church is seeking permission from Moultrie City Council to build a church on Seventh Avenue Southeast to create a permanent home for the Moultrie Hispanic Mission, which was founded 10 years ago by the Colquitt County Baptist Association. Special use permits are required before construction begins on any church, Hopkins said.

Consider an application from Artar Singh to sell beer for off-premises consumption at 3025 South Main Street.

Consider a request by Trinity Baptist Church for 12th Avenue Southeast between Second and Third Streets Southeast to be closed between 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Wednesday, July 23.
