City operating smoothly; council conducted short meeting
by Shelda Lunsford
Lineville City Council met Aug. 13 for their regularly scheduled meeting. The agenda was short and so was the meeting.
The council approved the annual Street Finance Report, resolution 08-12, with some discussion about pending repairs along Highway 65. The state is planning on a resurface of the highway and the council wants to be prepared with any patch and manhole work that needs to be done, in order for the overlay to remain as good as possible for the longest amount of time.
The grant applications have been submitted for recycle trailers and the city is moving forward with making city recycling a reality.
Utility Safety and Design, the company that supplies gas to the city has sent a letter stating the city will be charged an additional three percent on rates already in place.
Discussion of installing parking meters around the business area was held, at the request of a city resident. The council decided there was no need for the meters, as there is plenty of parking space for those using those streets in question.
A letter was received from Chariton Valley Planning and Development requesting the City of Lineville become a member of the organization.
The council voted not to join but to continue using the services of Area XV, as they have done in the past.
The next scheduled meeting for the city council is set for Sept. 10, at 7 p.m., at City Hall.
