With three members in attendance, the Mount Vernon City Council made short order of its business Thursday night, Jan. 10. Wastewater Superintendent Rodney Givens could report, after consultation with the project engineer, that local businesses should not suffer from the sewer line removal on the bridge east of town. Givens said the lift station there may need to be shut down, but for less than a full day. He stated that the approximately two-week project will be done before March.
Council passed one ordinance on first reading with the stipulation that the ordinance be resubmitted with copy corrected as needed. The ordinance comes to council from the Area Plan Commission and concerns domestic animals in non-agricultural zones and applications for improvement location permits. Council will be considering this ordinance again on second and third readings.
When council met as the Water Utility Board, Rich DeMarco of Johnson Controls provided an update on the Waterworks project. The project is nearing completion in every aspect, and DeMarco submitted the date of February 15 for contractor PPMI to demobilize.
Mayor John Tucker announced that department heads have been notified to submit year-end reports to him by February 7.
The Mount Vernon City Council will meet again Thursday, January 24, 2013, 7 p.m. at the City Hall Annex.
