Oolitic Town Council Conducts Abbreviated Meeting

(OOLITIC) – The Oolitic Town Council conducted an abbreviated meeting Monday evening.

Council President Dirk Sears, Clerk-Treasurer Jessica Staggs, and Town Attorney Greg Pittman were in attendance. Remaining Council members joined the meeting by conference call.

Until the Executive Order is lifted by Governor Eric Holcomb the town will only conduct essential business using the same format. Residents can communicate concerns by emailing Town Council members.

The town council:

  • Approved the request of Victor Reynolds to build a garage at 106 Sparks Drive.
  • Approved the application for a loan for the town’s match for a grant for water and sewer repairs. This is only to see if the town meets the criteria for a loan should the grant be approved.
  • Danny Stewart asked a question via email about potholes being taken care of in the area of 7th Street and throughout the town. The council said crews will be addressing the issues.
  • Marilyn Crouch asked about Hall and Mathias Streets’ stormwater issues. The council reported the issues have not been forgotten and officials are still working on a grant to address these issues.

Oolitic received $55,559.70 from a Community Crossing Grant this year.
