Marion City Council to meet Tuesday

The Marion City Council will take action Tuesday about the federal money to repair the sinkholes at the Community Building Park.

The City Council will hold its second regular meeting for March at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the City Hall.

The first item of business will be to approve the letter of commitment and documents related to the financing from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for the Community Building Park storm water project. This is about the sinkholes found underneath the park that forced city officials to close it to the public.

Representatives from the McDowell Tourism Development Authority will next appear before council.

City officials will hold three public hearings about annexations into the Marion limits. The properties to be annexed are located on Garden Creek Road, Shady Lane and McDowell High School Road.

Consequently, the council will hold three more public hearings about assigning zoning for these properties.

The public comment period will follow. This is the time when the public can speak to council about any issue or item not on the agenda.

Council will next consider accepting utility easements for Meredith Drive residential development and a donation of city property to the Marion Community Development Corp.

City officials will take action on the mowing contracts for the rights of way and Oak Grove Cemetery.

City Manager Bob Boyette will give his report to council.
