On-The-Spot Approvals & Delivery Council 'Retreats' to Discuss Issues t mile of pipe a year, but by August none By BRYAN GETER had been replaced. Hogansville City Manager David The Hogansville City Council met"-,jdrich said since August, about a half in a retreat at Johnny Brown'srestau- mile of line has been installed on the rant last lhesday evening, December 3, for approximately three hours dis- cussing several issues including hiring a public works director and completing a portion of natural gas pipelines that needs replacing. One of the main concerns was the replacement of 15 miles of cast iron nat- ural gas pipelines. Hogansville entered into agreement with the Georgia Public Service com- mission in 1999 to replace the natural gas lines. Federal law requires all cast-iron pipes be replaced due to safety concerns and the PSC is allowing 15 years to com- plete the project. Hogansville agreed to replace one Motmtville Road. He added that two quarter-mile sec- tions are slated for repair on JohnsorgGlover roads and Power Plant Road. The city manager said he expected the last mile will be completed by January 1. The city council along with Aldrich think a public works director would aid in speeding the replacement of the lines as well as other public works in the city. Councilman Jack Leidner said it was critical that a public works director now. Then, Councilman Jimmy jackson stated that $51,000 was available to hire a director. Mayor Wilson St. Clair asked Aldrich and Jackson to work on developing a proper salary for a director and get back to the council with a recommendation. Aldrich stated that by hiring a pub- lic works director, it would certainly help him alot. 'My duties as city manager must be split among routine utility jobs, public works jobs and other tasks," he stated. The council discussed hiring an addi- tional meter reader since the city has only one. Jackson said it is a veryimportant job since all the city's revenues are based on utilities. Councilman Jack Leidner said the city needed to hire a customer service person. He said if someone has to call coun- cilman to get routine things done, then there's something wrong with the sys- tem. "One good customer service per- son will solve the problem," Leidner said. The Power To Make New Live Longer The Calyspo TM washer is the latest fabric care solution from WhirlpoolS) home appliances.
