TREZEVANT – The Trezevant City Board met in their regular monthly session Tuesday, August 9 with an active agenda. The meeting got underway at 6:30 p.m. with a prayer and a roll call vote of board members present.
Under a Suspension of the Rules, West Carroll School Director Preston Caldwell requested help from the board on a traffic issue at the Elementary School. According to Caldwell, traffic gets tangled going both ways on Holmes Street at the back of the school. Caldwell presented a proposal to make Holmes Street one way coming from Clay Farm Road to town from 2:30 to 3:30 and have Trezevant Police Chief Mike Mulligan on hand to enforce it for the first few weeks. Caldwell informed the board the school district was prepared to pay for any signage that would be necessary.
Board members discussed the issue and all voted unanimously to approve the proposal. Caldwell thanked the board and complimented them for their continuing support and help the city has provided to the schools.
City Attorney Charles Trotter informed the board that a resolution may be needed to solve the travel trailer issue on Clay Street. According to the city rules, travel trailers can’t be placed inside the city limits. The owner was present at the meeting and informed everyone the trailer would be moved to outside the city limits by November 1. The city gave a deadline of November 1 to have this issue resolved.
During an update on the water project on Hwy 105, it was learned from the water department that new pipes were being laid and nearing completion. The issue came up when pipes began having rust and dirt buildup due to it being the end of the water line.
In other action, National Well Service was the low bidder on a well repair project with an approximate bid slightly over $43,000. The bid was approved. Estimates are being gathered for sidewalk repair made necessary due to a resident breaking the sidewalk. There was brief discussion on the city’s fireworks ordinance but no action was taken on the matter. Board members voted to approve a resolution for two residents on Hames Street to clean their properties.
With no other activity, the board voted to adjourn.
