HUNTINGDON (August 13) — Chronic flooding along Crooked Creek in the State Route 22 area will be addressed soon by two agencies.
Huntingdon Mayor Dale Kelley announced to the Huntingdon Town Council an effort by the Tennessee Department of Transportation and the West Tennessee River Basin would clear the clogged river channel. TDOT will provide the necessary funding for the WTRB project. For decades, State Route 22 has flooded, in part, because the river channel is obstructed by the downed trees and earthen encumbrances along the river.
In other business, the Council amended an ordinance that addresses a residency requirement to obtain package liquor licenses. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled the residency requirement is unconstitutional.
A 2015 Ford Explorer was purchase for $17,950 from the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Huntingdon Police Department plans to use it as a K-9 unit.
A contract was approved with Community Development Partners, LLC to develop an American Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan for town-owned property. The contract cost shall not exceed $19,000.
Watson Lumber Company of Huntingdon was awarded the contract to provide construction material to complete Phase II for the LPRF Kelley Sports Complex. The bid is for metal roofing, bathroom accessories and plumbing fixtures, wallboard, baseboards, carpet/tile. The lone other bidder was Arnold’s of McKenzie, also owned by the parent company of Watson Lumber Company.
Mayor Kelley announced CSX is to repair certain railroad crossings in the town very soon. He announced the railroad company has made similar promises in recent weeks but missed those dates.
