Faces of 2010- Happy New Year!
Board closes out year with fees, grant
Ongoing water issues and youth outreach were the two Christmas gifts waiting for the Board of Aldermen when they met on Tuesday, Dec. 21.
After approving the minutes from two previous meetings, the board discussed a policy on sprinklers and water disconnections.
Mayor Chuck Cariker said that town officials had been asked if customers could disconnect meters at their homes and with their sprinkler systems during the winter. Cariker said the town charges a $50 reconnect fee in situations when the water has been turned off for nonpayment.
Alderman Eloise Carson asked if customers paid a fee for disconnecting service and reconnecting it.
Water bubbles to top of special session
A public hearing set for January 6 has been postponed for at least 180 days in the wake of a special session called by Mayor Chuck Cariker.
On Thursday, December 16, Cariker told aldermen Eloise Carson Jack Graves, Charley Knabb and Edward Hunsucker that he felt there were issues that needed to be cleared up before going forward with the town’s water facilities plan.
“I just want to say this is not my plan,” Cariker said, explaining that his role as mayor is to carry on the day to day operations and advise the board. “I’m not trying to force anything on anybody.”
Boredom cures close by
Everyone looks forward to Christmas vacation, but after the gifts are unwrapped and the holiday food is eaten, what then?
It’s probably too cold or wet to play outside and, if you’re like me, maybe you start getting a little bit of cabin fever. So here are some ideas that can help pass the time between Christmas and New Year’s.
My original idea was to include only free activities, but let’s face it, a good time is going to cost you something these days.
