SALISBURY — Today’s City Council meeting – scheduled for 5 p.m. at City Hall – has a fuller-than-usual agenda.

In addition to hearing an update from Police Chief Jerry Stokes, the council will discuss a resolution that would authorize the use of Law Enforcement Mutual Assistance Agreements. These agreements would allow the Salisbury Police Department to rely on law enforcement officers from other municipalities in cases of emergency.

Other items on the agenda include:

  • Authorizing City Manager Lane Bailey to enter into an agreement with CDM Smith, an engineering company, in order to authorize work on the Grant Creek Wastewater Influent Pump Station and Headworks project.
  • Considering land development ordinances and amendments for areas along West Innes Street and Ryan Street and in the Brooklyn-South Square historic area.
  • Considering a request for a $156,000 grant that would be used to revitalize O.O. Rufty’s General Store, 126 E. Innes St.
  • Authorizing Bailey to approve a utility agreement with the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

The agreement would allow Salisbury-Rowan Utilities to reimburse the DOT for the estimated cost of adjusting public water utilities, which are being moved in order to make room for the widening of Interstate 85 in Rowan and Cabarrus counties.
