Haleyville City Council Meeting

Monday, July 20, 2015 | 8:07 PM

The Haleyville City Council met Monday with Jonathan Bennett and Bud Wilson absent and addressed a longer than usual agenda. The Council approved the June general operation bills of $409,419.53. 

A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was put into place with a resolution which calls for an agreement with the Haleyville First Baptist Church, First United Methodist Church, and the 9th Avenue Church of Christ to provide kitchen facilities and personnel under mutually agreed terms and conditions in the event of a disaster. Resolution 2015-25.

Heavy rains early this year caused erosion and drainage at the new Haleyville Sports Complex, which constituted a serious hazard to lives and property and because the City has been issued violations for not maintaining effective erosion and sediment controls during the months of heavy rain, and the possibility of the reoccurrence of flooding and erosion, the Council passed resolution 2015-26, declaring a State of Emergency. 

The council approved two change orders for the construction of the new fire station. One for electrical work in the the additional amount of $13,359.36. Resolution 2015-17. The other change order was for interior work to include additional sprinkler heads, insulation and plumbing for the additional amount of $10,196.55. Resolution 2015-28.

A contract was awarded to the low bidder,  Dymac Contracting, Inc. to pave the street behind the Neighborhood Facilities Building for $112,066.40. Resolution 2015-29.

Carcel & G Construction was approved as the low bidder for site work at the new Sports Complex. The base bid was $435.110.00. Reportedly, the company can be on site working within 2 to 3 weeks.

Littleton Electric Service, as low bidder, was awarded a contract for $429.200.00 for electrical work at the new Sports Complex. 

The Council approved up to $15,000 for the purchase of a Ranger vehicle from Shoals Outdoor Sports to be used by the Park and Recreation Department.

In order to replace a pickup damaged in a chase and wreck involving a fleeing fugitive by HPD investigator, Tim Steien, the Council approved advertising for a new vehicle to be used by Steien. 

Jason Winkles was approved to be hired as a new police officer, pending completion of the Law Enforcement Academy. Shawn Townsend was hired as a Class II dispatcher for the city. 

Mayor Sunseri reported revenues from sales and occupational taxes were up from this time last year, however revenue from the sale of alcoholic beverages was down, owing in part to the closures of two package stores. 

The next regular scheduled Council meeting will be Monday, August 3, 5:30 p.m. at the Neighborhood Facilities Building.
