Elmendorf selects contractor for new municipal building
ELMENDORF -- After the regular monthly meeting of the Elmendorf City Council March 8, plans are moving forward for the construction of the city’s new municipal building.
The council selected Sal-Con Inc. as the contractor that will erect the building. Sal-Con was the project’s low bidder at $1,210,500.
Another big item on the agenda was to discuss the future plans for the Butterfield subdivision.
“[It] was a chance for residents of the subdivision to voice their concerns and opinions about the subdivision, and where they think the future of the subdivision should go,” City Administrator Cody Dailey stated by email after the meeting to the Wilson County News.
About 15 residents spoke at the meeting, presenting their ideas for the future of the subdivision to the council, Dailey said.
The council also approved a motion to allow Dailey to enter into a contract for a survey of the city cemetery.
“Record-keeping under previous administrations was incomplete, and we do not have a good map of the cemetery to work with,” Dailey said. “There has been a moratorium on the sale of plots there for quite some time.
“We want to bring the cemetery back to operational status, but we need a good map to start this process,” he added. “The survey will be for the boundaries of the cemetery and the boundaries of all four sections and all 121 blocks.”
The council also made the decision to increase the frequency with which municipal court is held. Because of an increase in volume over the past six months, the council agreed to allow the court to hold sessions once a month. The city had been holding court sessions once every two months.
While the pending litigation between the city and Kilowatt Park Land, LLC was discussed in closed session, no action was taken when the council returned to an open forum, according to Dailey.
