Jamestown clears desk
In April 22 Issue
By Derek Aaron
Times Journal Reporter

The Jamestown City Council took care of some routine business items at last week's regular monthly meeting.

Among the happenings at the meeting:

The council voted to renew a 20-year easement with the Corps of Engineers. Currently there is an effluent line that crosses 9.4 acres of Corps property from the sewer plant to Lake Cumberland, according to Public Works Director Ottis Skaggs.

This will keep the city's discharge line and effluent line regulations up to standard.

The city has had an easement with the Corps of Engineers since 1980, Skaggs said.

City leaders heard and accepted a resolution to take ownership and maintain several small roadway segments due to the construction on the US 127-Jamestown bypass.

The city accepted a $550 bid from Rudy Chapman for a pontoon that was used by the water plant before the intake was moved to its current location.

The plant now has a new pontoon at its disposal.

Skaggs told the council that the city would be trying out a new way to obtain chemicals to be used by the water plant by bidding online.

He said the process would not cost the city any money and would allow the city to purchase the needed chemicals in bulk at reduced rates.

“It will take place on May 10 and save us a significant amount of money,” he said. Skaggs said he has spoken with officials in Danville that have had success with this type of bidding and highly recommended it.

Mayor Brooks Bates passed out flyers pertaining to the Jamestown Descendants Reunion that will take place on May 14 at 11 a.m. at the Greens Chapel Dining facility.

“It is so much of our heritage here in this town,” Bates said.

The reunion will feature a meal this year of either a chicken or pork chop dinner that is available to everyone in the county at $7 per plate.

Pre-orders are recommended and delivery drivers will be available. All donations are appreciated as well. A yard sale will also be held on June 5 behind the dining facility.

Bates said Clifton M. Taylor was the president of the reunion this year and could be reached at either 270-343-4368 or 270-343-5349. Another number to call for information is 270-378-4429.
