Meeting called to order 7:05
Other Present: Whit Smith
Mayor reviewed previous meeting’s Minutes, motioned to pass. Zach Nelson seconded.
Special Meeting: Attended by Mayor, Frank Thornhill and Zach Nelson. Discussion of temporary road repair from Maybank to Church. Work has been completed by Palmetto Clearing and Grading for the cost of $4500.00. Council also voted to reserve $15,000 from the Town’s operating funds for future road repair. Minor repairs for Harts Rd. SIYC Rd and Rockland will need more extensive work. Goal involves the County repairing the roads at no cost; however, the Town cannot request repairs until July 2020. Therefore, an economical temporary fix would be the best short term plan. Town will endeavor to find a Contractor to bid on repairs/maintenance. Early estimates indicate 40 +/- dump truck loads are needed to crown the roads. Alternatively, should the Town buy the necessary equipment and hire someone to maintain the roads? Research needed to explore this option.
