Mayor and Aldermen Met Today
Posted on February 26, 2013
In addition to the discussion of the beer ordinance, the Pulaski Board of Mayor and Aldermen voted on several issues at today’s meeting.
They voted to reject all bids on the Old Industrial Park property. The highest bid was $350 per acre for the 13.7 acre property, which the board felt was too low.
The board also voted to advertise for bids on an altitude valve for the Fort Hill water tank, as well as for the repair of utility cuts in streets by using an infrared process. In addition, they also adopted a resolution allowing for Tim Curry’s request to divert water into a drainage ditch on city property.
In the discussion of entering into contracts with Sain & Associates and TTL for the industrial access road, there was a question about whether or not the Industrial Development Board would have authority on this issues. Both motions were tabled until the board could find out where the property authority would be.
Finally, the board adopted a resolution that would allow them to file an application to the USDA Rural Development for an Emergency Water Assistance Grant. They are eligible for a $500,000 grant.
The Pulaski Board of Mayor and Aldermen will next meet in a work session on Monday at 4:30 p.m. at city hall. That meeting will be open to the public.
