Laurel Hill Council selects first roads for repairs, approves budget

Published: Thursday, February 7, 2013 at 09:57 PM.

The city came close to obtaining the grant money last year, but fell short after a permit missing from the application eliminated Laurel Hill from consideration.

Hall suggested searching for an engineer capable of grant writing, which would preclude the need for a grant writer, too.

"We would be killing two birds with one stone," he said.

Candidates with grant writing experience would have an advantage in the selection process, Mayor Joan Smith said.

The council decided to give each finalist a chance to make a presentation at the next scheduled council meeting, 6 p.m. April 4 at City Hall. 

Budget approval

The council voted to approve its budget, which includes moving $83,030 from reserved funds to a checking account for fuel tax revenue. The account's funds would be used for roadwork.
