Salisbury Post

A pair of state championship teams from Salisbury High School will be recognized at Tuesday’s City Council meeting.

Mayor Susan Kluttz will proclaim Tuesday as both “Salisbury High School Lady Hornets Golf Day” and “Salisbury High Lady Hornets Tennis Day.”

This fall, the golf team won the Central Carolina Conference Championship and its second straight N.C. 1A/2A/3A State Championship.

The tennis team won the Central Carolina Conference Championship, the N.C. 2A Western Regional Championship and the N.C. 2A State Championship.

Council meets at 4 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 217 S. Main St.

The golf team included Lauren Smith, Allison Lee, Megan Ming, Catherine Parks and Lauren Alexander. Smith was Central Carolina Conference Player of the Year.

Dale Snyder coached the golfers.

The tennis team included Susie Wear, Meredith Weisler, Hanna Lebowitz, Chris Leonard, Lindsay Davis, Holly Sexton, Molly Fowler, Kirstin Meyerhoeffer, Sarah Truemper, Brook Johnson, Shea Comadoll, Sun Dragas, Mariann Dandison, Sarah Shirley, Dzenita Sukeurika and Alex Yarborough.

Wear was Central Carolina Conference Player of the Year. She and Weisler, Lebowitz and Leonard were All-CCC Team members.

Chris Myers coached the team and was CCC Coach of the Year.

In other agenda items Tuesday, council will:

* Approve final documents for $6 million in revenue bonds.

In November, council agreed to begin the process to issue the bonds as a private placement with Wachvoia Bank. The bonds will go toward paying almost $15 million in identified water-sewer projects over the next two years.

Council is expected to authorize a second bond placement in 2007.

* Receive bids and consider awarding a lease-purchase contract for $674,425 to RBC Centura.

In October, council approved the purchase of a new Quint fire apparatus and to finance the cost over a four-year period.

RBC Centura offered the lowest fixed interest rate at 3.57 percent. Other bidders were BB & amp;T, SunTrust, Wachovia, Koch Financial Corp. and Citizens South Bank.

* Consider a revised site plan for Drummond Village off Stokes Ferry Road and Earnhardt Road.

* Discuss a Catawba College request to allow parking on the south side of the 100 block of North Park Drive.

* Consider a zoning change and special-use permit for parcels at 1311, 1133 and 1139 Bringle Ferry Road and two other unnumbered parcels. Kevin Wilson is making the request.

* Consider placing additional stop signs at four locations in Milford Hills.

* Receive a presentation on the 2006 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.

* Consider a budget amendment of $177,555 to appropriate a fund balance in the HOME Fund, which helps in community development efforts.
