New city council meets

SALYERSVILLE – The first Salyersville City Council meeting of the year was held on Monday, lasting for approximately 10 minutes as it was a special-called meeting.

Mayor Stanley Howard said he met with Summit Engineering and they are going to write up some projects for emergency sewer and water lines, with approximately eight or ten projects expected. He said that with that paperwork they will be able to apply for grants, and he hopes to be able to bring those projects to the council by the next meeting.

The council approved an interagency agreement with the state highway department for salt for the roads this winter.

Mayor Howard told the council he has asked John Montgomery from Dixie, and former city council members Jeff Ross and David Vanhoose if they would be willing to be check signers for the city, with all agreeing. The council approved to appoint those three men and Mayor Howard as check signers for the city.

The council also approved the interagency agreement with Magoffin County Schools to provide an officer, Mike Nickels, at the schools, which the school district funds.

The council agreed to have their next meeting as scheduled, for Monday, February 20 at 6:30 p.m., so the community will have a chance for comments, despite that day also being Presidents Day, a federal holiday. In the next meeting they will set the meeting times for the rest of the year.

Monday’s meeting was the first for the new council, made up of Phyllis Howard, Darrell Arnett, Patricia Frazier, Colin Ray Jackson, Tex Holbrook and Paul Montgomery, as well as for Mayor Stanley Howard.
