Cleveland prepares to acquire sewer pump station

The Cleveland Town Council held a brief meeting last Thursday night, with the sewer pump station in the River Heights subdivision being the main topic of discussion.

Town attorney Alex Smith was present with the necessary paperwork, including the deed which – once signed by all parties involved – will give the town official ownership of the pump station. This will allow them to perform maintenance on the system, should the need arise.

In other business, Mayor Jerry Jones commented on the great turnout for the Christmas in the Park event. He estimated that there were between 250 and 300 people in attendance, and remarked on what a great job everyone involved had done in putting the event together.

The council approved the reauthorization of the mayor’s agreement with RDS, a tax collection agency.

The salaries for council members that will serve in the next term were set and approved. The mayor’s salary however, was not included as it is set by law.

Council members attending the Dec. 15 meeting, in addition to the mayor, were Mike Evans, Kandy Little and Glenn Puckett. Doug Hill and David Grisby were absent.

The next council meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 19, at 7p.m.
