Council: Town projects near completion

Sunday, March 11, 2012

Center Point Town Council President Roy Smith
CENTER POINT -- Town council members reported the wastewater treatment plant and booster station projects are nearly complete at the recent Center Point Town Council meeting.

"The water system is complete and has been online for a good three months, and it's working fine," Center Point Town Council President Roy Smith said. "The booster pumps both kicked out last week and we have had maintenance done when the tower had a low reading."

Hannum, Wagle and Cline Engineering Project Manager Lindsey Glover visited the site for "pre-final walk through," and she is following up with the manufacturer.

The council voted unanimously in favor to approve the payment to the construction crews and change the order to put white rock back on the road that leads to the lagoon systems.

In addition, the council inducted another member into its Board of Zoning Appeals.

Town Clerk/Treasurer Roger Campbell conducted an official swearing in during the meeting for newly nominated BZA member Anne Harshbarger.

In other Center Point news, town officials are in the process of drafting a golf cart ordinance and/or four-wheeler that would require operators to carry state minimum coverage for liability insurance for approximately $25,000.

The ordinance would also restrict golf cart use to daylight hours and require the operator to be a licensed driver.

"This is the part that is most critical to the town," Smith said.

The proposed ordinance would set the maximum golf cart speed limit to 25 mph and require it to display a slow moving vehicle sign.

The council discussed including a clause stating if the vehicle were in an accident, then the operator would be responsible for picking up any debris from the accident.

The Center Point Town Council meets regularly on the first Tuesday of each month, at 7 p.m.
