Water tank inspection OKed

By MARLAN JONES,

The Mendenhall Mayor and Board of Aldermen held their regularly scheduled meeting on January 2.

 The board approved the mayor to proceed with a water tank inspection for the tank located on Water Tank Road. The inspection is estimated to cost $1,450 or $1,650. They then hired Kat McMillan and Jason Hughes as part time patrolmen for the Mendenhall Police Department.

The board approved the December minutes for all meetings that included a December 28 special called meeting held to set the date for the public appeal hearing of Jaron Priest.

Priest is appealing a decision made by the Mendenhall Zoning Board which denied his variance request on his building project. The date of the hearing was changed from January 9 to Friday, January 12 at 6 p.m.

 The board went into executive session to discuss fire department fuel charges before recessing the meeting.
