Laurel Hill council to push for dissolution ordinance Tuesday

Published: Friday, January 4, 2013 at 11:04 AM.

The council at a December town hall heard residents’ input on the matter. Most attendees favored dissolution.

Those who support such an ordinance hope dissolution would lead to improving the city's roads, particularly Steel Mill Creek Road and portions of New Ebenezer Road.

The timeline includes possible application for federal and state grants that would help fund road repairs.

The council on Tuesday will discuss possibly applying for a $600,000 Small Cities Community Development Block Grant for road repairs, Hendren said.

The council has unsuccessfully applied for the grant for the past two years.

"(Laurel Hill) would have most likely received the grant due to the amount of points they earned during the application process," Sonya Negley, president of Green Consulting and Solutions LLC, said.
