SEWER GRANT

The Council approved an application for a community development block grant for updating the city sewer system.

STREET RESURFACING

The Council approved the resurfacing of Ivy and Tillman Streets, to be funded with regional T-SPLOST (special purpose local option sales tax for transportation) revenue.

FIRE PROTECTION

Council member Kathy Rozier and Mayor Brian Nipper reported that, as a result of across-the-board budget cuts, the allocation for fire protection has been cut by $100 a month, beginning in January.

CLEANING UP

Nipper reported that city maintenance workers are removing dirt and debris that have been built up on the edges of Odum roads. The Council approved sending letters to residents who need to clean up their property. The letters are the first step in a process that was discussed at the February meeting. Council member Jim Westberry reported that the city will be receiving inmate help to clean up ditches and Odum City Cemetery areas that have become overgrown.

BEER AND WINE

The Council approved a beer and wine serving license for the Blue Jay Restaurant.

RECREATION

Council member Willie McLaughlin reported that 97 players on seven teams have signed up for Odum ball this spring. He also noted that the recreation department roof has been installed and that county recreation workers have been helping prepare the ball fields for the season.
