“We have discussion and consideration for some possible water tower graphics and design,” Craig said. “We’re building a new water tower in Frick Park. The Board has chosen the color for the tank on the elevated storage unit, it’ll be white. We haven’t chosen any logo or design that will be on it yet.”

There are three other items of business on the agenda for the meeting. One is the consideration of a proposal from Westbrook & Co., P.C. in Richmond for the city’s 2013 audit and another is regarding a few Board of Aldermen meetings which need to be moved because they fall on city observed holidays. The Board will also discuss a program which reduces the price of obtaining a permit to build a single-family home in Oak Grove, which was implemented in the Spring of 2013.

“The $400 is what the builder would pay total for the permit,” stated Craig. “Typically single-family residential permits in most cities cost on average about $4,000 to $5,000, so this program reduces the cost to that $400.”

The Board will meet Monday evening at 7:00 at the Oak Grove Civic Center for an open session before adjourning to a closed session.
