By Ed Waggener
In last night's City Council meeting, the Council voted to add a new street, Office Park Drive, to the street system, heard an encouraging report on downtown renovation including the Well Walk sidewalk project, received word that City Street department truck is ready to use, and Mayor Harris announced leaf pickups on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Office Park Drive accepted as a City Street
The motion to approve the addition of Office Park Drive into the city street system was made by Councillor Craig Dean, with a second by Tony Grider. It was approved 6-0 on a show of hands, with Coucillors Linda Waggener, June Parson, Jim Hadley and Robert Flowers joining in affirming the action.
Mayor Harris recommended the inclusion because the street is already heavily used as a shortcut from the Montgomery Avenue/Heskamp Street area and the busy Jamestown and Hurt Street intersection shopping and professional services area.
Clayton Hadley apprises Council of plans for ice vending operation
Adair County businessman Clayton Hadley came before the Council to tell them of his plans to put a 24 hour Ice Vending location near Taco Bell in the old Walmart Shopping center, near Taco Bell and across Jamestown Street from the Columbia McDonalds. The new business is now making its way through Columbia Planning and Zoning and past various red tape obstacles, but Hadley expects the $100,000 plus investment to be in operation in time for the next tourist season.
Lake Cumberland Hazardous Waste Plan adopted
The Council heard a reading of Resolution 2011-07, a resolution for the adoption of the Lake Cumberland Area Development District Regional Hazzard Mitigation Plan, which was accepted unanimously on following a motion by Councillor Dean, with a second by Jim Hadley.
Mayor Harris announced by bagged leaves will be picked up
Mayor Harris annnounced that bagged leaves will be picked up by the City Street Department on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and that the city's latest vehicle acquisition, a truck for the Street Department, is ready to go into use.
The Mayor also congratulated ADAIR Band for its record 20th State KMEA Marching Band Championship. An amazing feat, he said.
Mayor Harris said that he would like to see the city invest in a leaf vacuum, and hoped to have prices for Council to consider before next autumn.
Craig Dean congratulated the band and acknowledged the service and sacrifice of Veterans.The routine approval of the minutes for the October 3, 2011 meeting was unanimous on a motion by Jim Hadley, seconded by June Parson.
Councillor Robert Flowers continued tradition of Joe Moore and moved adjournment.
