CLAY—During Tuesday night’s meeting, Clay City Council approved a resolution releasing a lien for the abatement of weeds at 7440 Lucky Circle. The council also voted to award a contract to TUC Pipeline for the demolition of a structure at 7535 Old Springville Road with a lowest bid of $12,700.
A resolution declaring weeds to be a public nuisance was also passed by the council during the meeting. The resolution refers to properties at 2146 Sweeney Hollow Road, 5151 Cimmaron Circle, 6505 Eagle Ridge Lane and 6513 Eagle Ridge Lane.
A separate resolution was approved declaring weeds to be a nuisance at a number of properties located on Saint James Drive and Fox Glove Way. According to City Manager Ronnie Dixon, the nearly 30 properties are owned by a single developer but were never developed. The proposal comes at the request the Fire Department with claims that the state of the properties could prevent firefighters from accessing hydrants, which could pose a risk to the surrounding neighborhoods.
A public hearing will be held during the regular meeting on Monday, October 3 at 6:30 p.m. for anyone who wishes to address either of the proposals mentioned above.
Also during the meeting, Dixon announced an upcoming music festival that will feature the group Confederate Railroad. While the festival is currently set to be held at Cosby Lake Park, alternative locations are being discussed due to concerns about space and parking. The free event will be held on Saturday, October 29 from 12-4 p.m.
The next Clay City Council meeting will be held on Monday, September 19 at 6:30 p.m.
