GRANITE QUARRY ó Several spring events are being planned in Granite Quarry:
The annual Easter Egg Hunt will be held April 17 at Civic Park.
ěPlants in the Parkî will be held April 30 at Granite Lake Park.
The town will make dumpsters available on South Main Street for the Spring Cleanup May 12-14.
A ěFish for Funî will be held June 4 at Granite Lake Park.
At the Board of Aldermenís meeting Monday night, Mayor Mary Ponds recognized Greg Philpot, recently elected chairman of the Parks, Events & Recreation Commission.
Ponds said Philpot is ěvery impressedî with suggestions from the newly established commission, which represents a merger of the Parks and Recreation Committee with the Community Projects and Events Committee.
Police Chief Mark Cook introduced part-time Officer Brian Jackson to the board.
Town Manager Dan Peters reported that HorsePower Site Solutions of Charlotte, which received a $279,021 contract in February for the Brookwood Drive culvert, is proceeding with its work and should be completed within 120 to 150 days.
The culvert is located in the Woodbrook subdivision.
The townís engineering firm, Alley, Williams, Carmen & King, billed the town for mapping in relation to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers floodplain maps, which are affected by the culvert repair. The invoice for Brookwood culvert (mapping) was $4,130.47.
Mayor Pro Tem Bill Feather said new mapping for the area should remove some residents from the floodplain and, overall, lower the 100-year floodplain.
Ponds read a letter Monday from the State and Local Government Commissionís Finance Division in which the town was commended for ěmarked improvementî on its audit ending in fiscal year 2010.
Ponds credited the work of Finance Officer Stacy Heath.
Aldermen finished their business Monday in 14 minutes.
