Madisonville Grants Permission for Covenant Community Easter Hunt at City Park

citycouncilmeeting goldMADISONVILLE, Ky. (2/18/14) — The Madisonville City Council met on Monday, Feb. 17 to discuss requests made by community officials and members.

Approval for a bid made for electrical work as part of the renovations at the new dispatch center was awarded to William E. Groves Construction for $28,500.

“This is a budgeted item for the renovations for the 911 dispatch,” said Chief Wade Williams. “It’s within the $200,000.”

The council approved the city announcing its intent to participate in the process of seeking funding through the Department of Local Government and Federal Department for Highway’s Recreational Trails Program for Mahr Park.

“The application process is actually a three-step process,” said Community Development Director Daron Jordan. “Once it is elected to move forward, we have to submit to state clearing house to get feedback from different agencies. It also has to go to the Department of Fish and Wildlife to make sure there aren’t any issues with the bodies of water. Then, once we get those back, then we can move on to Department of Local Government. There is a time frame for all of this be done by March 31.”

The council approved Jim Asbury’s request to declare high voltage rubber gloves as surplus.

“We currently have 30 pairs of high voltage rubber gloves that we would like to declare as surplus,” said Jim Asbury. “We have upgraded to a new glove called a bell glove that has a larger cuff on it, which is easier to use, especially when you are working at shoulder length.”

The council also gave permission to the Covenant Community Church to utilize the city park for the annual Easter Eggstravaganza from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 12. They also approved to move the event to Saturday, April 19 at the same time in case of rain.

In other news, Mayor David Jackson made three proclamations declaring the month of February as Career and Technical Education Month, declaring Feb. 16 through 22 as Food and Check - Out Week and declaring the month of March as Literacy Celebration Month.

Longevity pins were given out to Diana Staton of the finance department for 20 years, Tammie Lee with the City Clerk's department for 15 years and Stephen Cain with the Parks Department for 5 years.
