Minutes:  Consideration – Approval of minutes of March 19, 2013 – Regular Monthly Meeting:  On a motion by Councilman Foster, second by Councilman Davis, the Board voted to approve the minutes as presented. (Vote 5-0)

Policy Agenda Items:

A)     R.H. Davis Oil Company to Discuss and Authorize Mayor to Enter into Agreement for Plant Capacity and Cost Recovery. – Mr. Ricky Davis was present to discuss the new travel center south of Town at the interstate.  The original plans were to include a restaurant, but it has been omitted at this time.  They have room to build it in the future.  Mr. Scott Lyons has worked with Mr. Davis to create an agreement that allows Mr. Davis to design, permit, and install the necessary water and sewer lines down County Road 125 South to the new store.  The agreement allows Mr. Davis to recover some of his expense when other people hook into this water and sewer line extension.  The lines to be installed will be large enough to accommodate future growth at the interstate.  Council had no questions.  Councilman Foster asked if the Davis’s will open up land for sale around the interstate after the lines have been installed.  Mr. Davis replied yes.  Mr. Davis also said people make the mistake of thinking the roads move development, when the water and sewer is what brings growth.  The new store is projected to only use 5-6 % of the capacity.  Councilman Reneau added that while Mr. Davis will be recouping money back, it is still an asset for the Town.  Mayor Padgett said there are a few minor changes to the agreement, but it will be approved by the Engineer and Attorney before signing.  On a motion by Councilman Foster, second by Councilman Rhynehardt, the Board voted to authorize Mayor Padgett to enter into agreement for plant capacity and cost recovery with R. H. Davis Oil Company with the approved changes to be made.  Once these water and sewer lines are installed, all homes along the road can hook up, but will pay Davis Oil.  Mr. Davis is hoping to have the building ready in August.

B)    Review Prior Month’s Expenditures (Check Register) – Council had no questions about the prior month’s expenditures.

Mayor Padgett gave and update on the ATM.  Ads have been advertised for electrical and concrete/asphalt work to be bid on.  The deadline is April 19th at 10:00 AM.  The Town will then need to incorporate the Letter of Intent into the agreement.  We will then be ready to move forward.

Councilman Foster asked about the new Dollar Store.  He said they still have a septic tank and sump pumps there.  Mayor Padgett told Council she will go by and check on this matter.

Councilman Reneau asked about the chlorine levels.  Mayor Padgett responded they have gone down.  She read the chart maintenance has been keeping.  Councilman Rhynehardt told Council he has started getting the smell back.  Councilman Reneau said he has had several people approach him since they have read about it in the paper.  Councilman Rhynehardt then asked what his reading had been when they took a sample at his home.  He had not heard the results, which was a 0.61.

On a motion by Councilman Davis the Town meeting was adjourned at 7:22 P.M.
