Prestonville Commissioner Linda Clark updated her colleagues on Prestonville Christmas at its meeting Dec. 16. The commissioners voted to spend Christmas party money on gifts for children living in Prestonville.
Clark told the board that, they had not been able to survey a couple of households, because no one had been home, but said she would have them by Wednesday.
Mayor Billy Walker said Walmart donated a $50 gift card toward the effort.
Clark said she thought everything could be purchased at Walmart. “I think we should be able to give [the gifts] out at least by Friday,” she said.
Leash law discussed
Walker updated the board on the news regarding enforcement of a leash law in Prestonville. He said he spoke to Carroll County Judge-Executive Harold “Shorty” Tomlinson and “the dog catcher is allowed over here in Prestonville.”
Local citizen James McArter informed the board that there was not a county leash law. Walker agreed to double check county laws with Tomlinson before calling the dog catcher on any animal that was not a stray.
City pays Moore for park upkeep
Clark remarked about how nice the Christmas lights looked at the city park. She also said Jody Moore did an excellent job of cleaning the area up and keeping it clean during recent months. Clark made a motion to pay her for doing so.
The board agreed to pay Moore $160 for cleaning up the park the past four months and hanging Christmas lights. They also agreed to pay her $40 per month to keep the area clean and remove the trash.
Lighting needed at city building
Commissioner Louie Spencer remarked about how dark it was outside the city building and said he believes a light is needed.
City Attorney Corey Gamm said he thought that was a good idea. Walker said he would call Kentucky Utilities and check on getting a street light in the area.
The board agreed to reimburse Jody Moore $34 for ink used to print photos of the Community Center construction area. The photos were taken as evidence for pending litigation.
Walker told the board that the sewer loan payment was sent out this week and it had included “the extra $50,000” that the board agreed upon during the last meeting.
The board discussed the snow removal by Paul Yocum earlier in the month. Clark said she thought “he did a good job.” The board agreed to let Yocum decide if, and when, salt needed to be used.
The next meeting of the City of Prestonville will be 6 p.m. Jan.20.
