Mayor and Aldermen Met in Work Session
Posted on February 04, 2013
The Pulaski Board of Mayor and Aldermen met yesterday afternoon in a work session.
The board heard from Wilson Stevenson, president of BNL Technical Services. He explained to them about litigation between his company and Silicon Ranch and asked that, in future meetings, to let him know if his company is being discussed and to confirm that the information they are hearing is true.
The board heard from Richard Holt, of Sain Associates, who discussed Brindley Construction's involvement with Integrity Mold Project and their new plant in Industrial Park South. Holt updated them about the construction of this building.
Reports were given about bids on capital outlay notes, the high service limp pump, land in Old Industrial Park, and the proposed LED information sign for the Recreation Center. The lowest bid on the sign is $19,861. Alderman Vicky Harwell told the board that the feedback given to her about the sign was overwhelmingly negative. She said there is concern that the placement, at an already busy area of town, will lead to more accidents. She said that people have told her that if the gas department has enough money to pay for the sign that, instead, they should lower their rates. There was also discussion, among the board members, about whether this sign would pass the proposed sign ordinance. As the ordinance is now, it would not, although they are still working on writing it.
Finally, applications for four permits have been filed: the Relay for Life on April 13, MMC Student Nurse Organization on April 30, Trent Holt 5K on May 11, and Giles County Tourism on May 18.
