Copperhill notes ...
Article Author: Emily Dilbeck
Mayor Cecil Arp announced that work was moving ahead on the sewage meter replacements discussed earlier in the year. The meters are outdated and the state is requiring the City make an upgrade.
Arp showed the Councilmen a map the State of Tennessee had sent him detailing a manhole to be placed near Tennessee Avenue.
City Recorder Sandi Collins told the Council that this process would most likely be a long and drawn out, since the City had applied for grant money to help aid in the cost.
Arp told the Council that he had talked with TDOT and several other State organizations that said grants would not be processed until after the November election. He said he hopes to follow up on a grant for a Police Department after the election.
The Council also reviewed the budget for 2012-2013. Collins explained that she had had to set aside funds for attorney’s fees. The Court is expected to make one more decision in the Paul Hunter case and an attorney will be needed then. The Board members voted unanimously to approve the 2012-2013 budget.
The Copperhill City Council meets the 3rd Monday of every month at 6 pm in City Hall.
