POMARIA — Large vehicles like log trucks traveling through Pomaria often barrel through at speeds well above the posted speed limit, a more than common occurrence that has Town Councilman Billy Fanning concerned for the safety of residents.
Fanning broached the subject with the Pomaria Town Council, asking members to see if something could be done before a tragedy occurs.
“I agree with you (Fanning). I’ve seen these trucks come through the 45 mile zone going 60 or 70 miles per hour,” Mayor Darryl Hentz said, adding he will see what can be done to alleviate the speeding.
Town Clerk-Treasurer Kristy Graham brought up the re-mulching of the playground. According to the mayor, the mulch is wearing so thin that the pads underneath are beginning to show.
New ceder mulch to cover the playground’s 8 cubic yards will be bought from Willinghams and Sons and will cost $209 a load. The number of loads needed has yet to be determined.
In other business, the financial report for July was approved. The total receipts totalled $5,868.60, while the total disbursements came to $2,556.56. The ending balance for the month was $19,504.99, which was a gain from the beginning balance of $16,192.95.
Fanning also updated council on the Old School Reunion’s progress with building improvements and Graham giving updates on the progress of the town’s website.
“The website is still in progress,” Graham said. “Within the next couple of weeks it should be up and presentable.”
