Bainbridge council discusses spring and summer projects

Friday, April 11, 2014

BAINBRIDGE -- The Bainbridge Town Council addressed spring cleaning and concrete improvements on Wednesday, two issues requiring more conducive weather than has been provided as of late.

Spring Cleanup Day is scheduled annually to take place on the first Saturday of May, this year falling on May 3.

Meanwhile, board member Chuck McElwee brought forth information regarding the current Putnam County Animal Control Advisory Board campaign to ask towns in the county to commit to an annual donation of $1 per head of population per town.

For the 2015 fiscal year, the board approved a commitment to what equates to an approximately a $750 annual donation from Bainbridge.

The council also addressed several paving issues, including the downtown sidewalks and an intersection on Main Street. With weather being uncooperative for concrete work, no progress has been made since the previous town council meeting in February.

Utility Superintendent Troy Elless addressed several projects within Bainbridge and mentioned that the flooding from precipitation this year was not as bad as the town had expected.

Elless updated the council on tree removal, patching holes in concrete and the equipment that is installed in the lagoon to bring the lagoon into state compliance.

The ongoing legal action between the Land and Sons company and the town of Bainbridge was brought to the attention of the council.

McElwee informed the council that after attempts to serve Land and Sons with legal documentation, it appears that the company has moved and left no forwarding address.

Also discussed was the need to increase visibility for a no-parking zone near the baseball diamond

The next Bainbridge Town Council meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday May 14.
