SPRINGVILLE – Mayor William Isley and city council members approved expenditure of up to $75,000 for a sewer infrastructure study requested by Earl Peoples, Director of Public Works. The study will involve mapping the existing system, as well as identifying and recommending resolution for any infiltration in the system. The information gathered will ideally also clarify specific enhancements needed to meet the demands of the city’s growing residential and commercial population.
The council also approved an updated Community Safe Room Shelter Operation Plan. Originally adopted in February 2008, the plan is updated in compliance with the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program to reflect action plans for the current shelters at 585 Village Springs Road and 210 Walker Drive. The plan also reflects necessary actions for the shelter located at 370 Springville Station Blvd., scheduled to be complete in 2019.
The council also approved $995 sponsorship of city map / resource guide and $2,437 to Tire Tech for Public Works vehicle repair.
The next regularly scheduled meeting of the council will be Monday, Feb. 4 at 6:00 p.m., with a preceding workshop at 5:30 p.m.
