The City Council met Monday night in Carrollton for a regular meeting. Click to hear KMZU’s Chelsea Wade talk with Administrative Assistant Terry Bell:
“We adopted an ordinance to purchase the real estate that is up on Harvest Hill,” said Bell. “There is also a donated piece of property. The city will give the donor a tax deductible gift letter. That is for the future if we can ever build on and extend the Roupe Center.”
There were two more item of business on the agenda, but they were not discussed.
“Bids for the mounting package were tabeled because Mr. Duff was not present, and he would be the one who would ask questions on that,” Bell added. “In the old business, he was [supposed] to be here to present the list of streets to be sealed. Both of those issues were tabeled until August the 19th Council.”
Bell added that it is imperative for motorists driving on the newly reopened Old Highway 24 at the south end of Carrollton to exercise caution and to be mindful of their speed, citing workers in the area who are within eight feet of the road. Bell said that the city is working with state officials to decide whether or not it would be a safer option for the Council to close the road until all construction has been completed.
