At their monthly city council meeting Thursday night, the Hahira City Council voted to authorize City Manager Jonathan Sumner to lift the current moratorium on sewer/water taps in the Lawson Farms subdivision, pending resolution of the current litigation brought against the city by Guardian Bank. Sumner is also authorized to solicit bids for the repair of the drainage problems that have plagued the subdivision in recent months.
Discussing the city's website, the council voted to accept bids for an upgrade.
“The website we have now is a functional website, but it's old technology,” said Council Member Ralph Clendenin. “We can take the existing website and upgrade it...and make it modular.”
The Frogtown Winery Agreement between the City and Frogtown Winery, who have been in the process of building a tasting room in Hahira for months, was approved, with Sumner authorized to accept bids for the hook up of sewer/water lines to the winery.
The council also:
• Voted to accept the $2,500 bid for painting the fire station, which would seal the blocks, preventing rain water from seeping in.
• Accepted a contract for IT work with Ricoh.
• Voted to remove three trees in Lawson Park that have begun leaning.
• Voted to repave North West St. with SPLOST VI funds.
• Approved a new City Hall sign, to be designed and built by KRS Neon Signs for $2,520. The sign will not be neon.
• Voted to accept the SPLOST VII Agreement that outlines the proposed uses for the funds Hahira would receive should SPLOST VII be voted in.
