Cleveland board votes to change monthly meetings

The Cleveland Town Board discussed changes to the town’s outreach library, park and recycling program at their monthly meeting Monday evening.
This fall, the town wants to pave Park Loop, the road that serves as the entrance and goes through the city park.
In the meantime, the town will put gravel down and fix some potholes with the “intent to pave later this year,” according to Mayor Danny Gabriel.
Cleveland annexed the town park several months ago. Now that it’s inside the city limits, they can use street money after July 1, when the road is added to the city map.
The park is located at 300 Clement St. in Cleveland, directly behind the old West Rowan YMCA.
The town is moving the Rowan County Outreach Library to another structure on Town Hall property. The library will continue its regular hours, from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Gabriel also talked about improving the town’s recycling program. Currently, Cleveland handles its own recycling, but the mayor would like to contract it out so more items can be recycled.
Gabriel said he hopes to have the details worked out in the next two to three months by the time the town begins putting together its budget for next year.
Beginning March 10, the Cleveland Town Board will hold its monthly meetings on the second Monday of each month, rather than the first. Commissioner Gerald Osborne requested that the meetings be moved because water and sewer reports for the previous month are not available until after the first Monday.

In other news, the Cleveland Board of Commissioners:
• Decided to do away with the yard of the month program.
• Purchased a new copier for $2,900 including taxes. The town chose the cheapest bid.
• Agreed to reimburse a town maintenance employee for an electrician training class if passed. The cost is $180.
• Commissioner Gerald Osborne reported on sewer plants and water usage.
• Awarded an advanced law enforcement certificate to Billy Marsh.
