The Pleasanton Council met Monday night and heard from Tara Carpenter asking the council to waive the $75 water hook-up fee required for Carpenter Chiropractic. They purchased the Clinch Realty building located at 601 Holly Street from Brandon McGinnis and are set to move in April 1.

The city had no record of a water meter fee on Carpenter’s Main Street location despite them being on Main Street since 2007.

Councilman Jake Mattingley made a motion to waive the deposit that was approved by the council.

The council heard from engineer Jason Hoskinson, BG Consultants, who received approval to do a dam inspection on the East Lake dam for $2,500.

See separate story, he was also approved to begin a preliminary engineering report concerning city streets and a plan to begin repair.

The council approved placing a one-cent sales tax on the next ballot for Pleasanton voters to approve.

Following several executive sessions for trade secrets, etc., the council received the resignation of City Administrator Teresa Whitaker; see separate story.

The council discussed sand blasting the pool but decided to try to repair as much as they can and repaint it. They also approved lowering the age of lifeguards to 15 years-of-age to help in hiring new employees.

Phil Mitchell and Jay Allen, STARS program, were approved to use heavy equipment to clear land that is designated for the new motorcycle training program. STARS students will aid in running equipment and will save the city much money and get training, as well.

The council approved the in-kind use of students and asked that a liability waiver be signed by STARS.

Public Works Administrator Joey Morrisey was asked to present a “dream” list of goals. Included in that, Morrisey said he’d like to see enough staff to have certain employees designated to the water plant and other departments without trading during the day.

Also, he’d like to see a lake development and a golf course.

The council approved a revised conditional use permit for the former MeeMaw’s Restaurant building to allow for residential living for 90-days. After 90 days, the owners, Becky and Doug Grant, will be fined daily if someone is living there.

Becky Grant said her son, who is currently living there, is in the process of purchasing his own home.
