Commission Meeting Minutes
City Of Lawrenceburg, Tennessee
July 12, 2001

A motion was made by Commissioner Lindsey to approve the minutes of the July 5 meeting; with a second by Commissioner Gowen, the motion passed.

Mayor Lay announced the meeting held with TDOT and Commissioner Saltsman concerning the widening of Highway 43 project and storm water drainage was successful. Every entity knows their part, Federal, State and Local; and we are committed to solving this drainage problem. We will publicly announce the plan shortly.

A Public Hearing was held on Ordinance #940. One person spoke on the subject and the hearing was closed.

Fire Chief Don Kelley presented a Fire Station Proposal to the Commission. A study was done by MTAS, and it was recommended that we sell Station #2, and build a new one in the Springer Road area. We hope to have this accomplished within this budget year. A new station is proposed for the west section of town and we would hope to have that done in the 2003 budget year. The new station will require new equipment and more manpower.

Attorney Betz had two ordinances and three resolutions for presentation:
