Bethany City Administrator Jacob Taylor reported that the Water Main Project on Oakland Avenue has completed a pre-construction meeting. The construction for the project is expected to be completed by the end of October. That project will be completed before the TAP sidewalk project is started in the spring. The report was part of Bethany’s City Council meeting Monday.
He also reported that the final cost for the storm debris cleanup for the city was $107,714. The money was paid out of the Solid Waste Fund Account. That account still has over $100,000 remaining in it.
Green Hills Insurance has opted not to use the space on the northeast side of the square as a temporary facility, so a lease agreement for the city land will not be needed. Green Hills offices will be moving for the former Richard’s Menswear building on the south side of the square.
The move of the Bethany Depot has been tentatively scheduled for September 14th. Water and sewer service lines have been installed. Concrete work will be done when the weather allows.
A Code Enforcement Officer has been hired by Green Hills and will be in Bethany once per week. Carly Taul will also provide code enforcement service for Gallatin and Hamilton.
The Bethany City Council also reviewed the correspondence between the Department of Natural Resources and the city on a recent inspection on the city’s waste water facility. A People’s Services representative says the deficiences are being addressed.
