Highlights from the last board meeting on November 4th
Monday saw a second hearing for the proposed Leafspring School daycare project. The applicant, Jeff Bazow, was on hand to personally extend his thanks to Deputy Town Manager Wayne Herron, his team, and the town for the ease of process calling it “customer friendly.” Concerns were voiced by Commissioners Naas and Gilroy about traffic impacting the location, which is near the intersection of Statesville and Washam Potts Roads. When left hand turn backups were mentioned, Gilroy suggested the road would allow vehicles to drive around. Naas, while soliciting feedback from Police Chief Black, pointed out that passing on the right was illegal, eliciting laughs.
Board appointments and electric funds write-off approved
Approvals were granted unanimously to two Architectural Review Board appointments. In addition, the board approved the write off of $20,385.22 in uncollected electric funds from fiscal year 2016. While collection efforts will continue, this write-off will allow the town to state this amount is unlikely to be collected.
Round-Abouts right of way approved
One approval was not unanimous: The donation of right of way to the Department of Transportation for the construction of the US 21/Catawba dual roundabout project. It was Commissioner Naas who pointed out previous complaints from residents in the Smithville Park area about the construction projects footprint in the community. While noted, this was passed 4-1.
