An oversight in the Town’s Zoning Ordinances was corrected during the Monday night session of the Elizabethtown Town Council meeting. A text addition of “automobile sales, new and used” as a permitted use in District C-1 General Commercial was approved by the Council. The use was inadvertently left out of the list of permitted uses during the recently updated Zoning Ordinances.

In administrative matters, Council approved the 2018 unpaid tax report, tax releases and the monthly financial report. In addition, Council awarded the low bid for the Elizabeth Street repair project to Bill Worley & Sons General Contractors for $227,487 contingent upon FEMA funding and availability of town funds. Council tabled signing a Release of Option to Purchase for an industrial park property until wording of the release is clarified.

The pre-construction conference for the Phase II, Streetscape project is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 2:30 p.m. in the Council Room at Town Hall. Phase II covers Pine to Gillespie streets along Broad Street. There is a public meeting from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. with time for questions for property owners who will be affected by the construction project.

The Town’s annual budget retreat is scheduled Feb. 26 at the new Airport Terminal Building at 8:30 a.m. The ribbon cutting for the new facility is set for March 1 at 11 a.m.

Mayor Sylvia Campbell introduced Cameron West, who is completing an internship under Town Manager Eddie Madden. West is the son of Alan and Cheryl West of Elizabethtown.
