Council discusses cost of sidewalk repairs

  • 0

Cameron Town Council received an update on sidewalk repairs at the April meeting.

Mayor David Summers said he was contacted by Jennita Jacobs with the South Carolina Department of Transportation with a list of sidewalks in town that need repair and the cost of the repairs.

He said Jacobs asked the town to contact the Calhoun County Transportation Committee to see if they could pay for some or all of the repairs.

The Outdoor Spatial Design firm is still working on plans for the Boyce Lawton Drive property, council was told. A meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday, May 6.

Also, repairs and maintenance for Nursery Street will also be addressed at the next county transportation committee meeting.

In other business:

• Councilman Wayne Polin said he is still working to fill a position on the Property Review Committee and hopes to fill it by the May meeting.

• Council unanimously approved an electric service rights agreement between Tri-County Electric Cooperative and South Carolina Electric & Gas (Dominion), which is to avoid any electric service rights that may arise. The agreement states that the town agrees to the electric service rights within the parcels as assigned by a map provided as exhibit A to the service rights agreement.

• Council heard the first reading of two new franchise agreements with SCE&G (Dominion) and Tri-County Electric Cooperative. It provides for an agreement should the town annex any area within Tri-County's assigned area.

• Councilman Clark Smith discussed dismounted postal service for Boyce Lawton Drive. His business address on the street, and he said the postmaster told him that the street had to be reclassified from rural to allow dismounted delivery and the location of the mailbox is still unresolved.

Council received a town department request for a new lawnmower for the street department. Polin will investigate.

• For the month, the police department reported 12 calls for service, one community event, one investigation, 13 traffic cases; two accident reports, one license check, two assists to the South Carolina Highway Patrol, one fire call and one EMS first responder call.

• Summers read a note from St. Peter's AME Church in appreciation for the town's participation in the groundbreaking ceremony for the church’s new sanctuary. Summers congratulated the church and said that the town is looking forward to seeing progress on the new building.
