Council action to preserve Memorial Park Natatorium

BY NICOLE SMITH
Thursday, April 18, 2019

The Jasper City Council has approved a bid for a project to benefit visitors of Memorial Park Natatorium for years to come.

A resolution has been approved to replace a dehumidifier at the Natatorium that is essential for controlling humidity at the indoor pool. Had the council not supported the project, there would have been ramifications to the structure of the building.

Memorial Park Natatorium Director Stacy Smothers explained Wednesday that the building's current dehumidifier is no longer operating efficiently and could cause harm to fixtures surrounding the indoor pool.

“Autism affects each individual in different ways,” the proclamation continued, “and can range from very mild to severe, knows no racial, ethnic or social boundaries and affects young and old.”

In other business, council members:

  • announced reappointment of Bert Hendrix and Wayne Rector, and the appointments of Lisa Killingsworth and Paul Kennedy to the Jasper Industrial Development Board.
  • held a public hearing and approved a restaurant retail liquor license for on-premise consumption for The Local No. 7 located at 305 U.S. Highway 78 West.
  • adopted a budget amendment to provide funding for several projects in the city, including replacing traffic signs and installation of a pet water fountain on the courthouse square.
  • approved a request to allow O’Mary to sign a deed for property on Gamble Avenue in exchange for property needed to resolve an issue with flooding.  “I think you’re all aware of the flooding issues we have on the southern end of the city,” O’Mary told council members.
  • approved a request for new lighting at the 18thStreet West alley and a 14th Street West alley.
  • adopted a resolution to award a bid to replace a dehumidifier at the Memorial Park Natatorium. The cost of the dehumidifier is just over $800,000.
  • held a public hearing and approved adopting a resolution to set costs for two properties that were previously placed under the city’s nuisance abatement ordinance.
  • The council also adopted a resolution to place several other properties under the ordinance due to being unsafe structures, having overgrown grass and weeds, or abandoned vehicles.
  • approved an ordinance to annex property adjacent to 916 Country Club Road into the city limits.
  • approved placing a three-way stop at the intersection of 10th Avenue and 25th Street.
  • heard from O’Mary that LED lighting will soon be placed along Elliott Boulevard.
  • heard from Bill Cleghorn, who praised the city for all the work that’s being done in the city. Cleghorn also asked city leaders to look into the possibility of strongly suggesting that bicyclists and runners — specifically at night — wear some form of lighting as a safety precaution.
