During the White Lake Board of Commissioners meeting Tuesday night, Mayor Goldston Womble updated the members about the Third Annual White Lake Water Clean-Up/Fill the Dumpster Campaign. The campaign began May 11 and will continue through Thursday, June 6.
People are encouraged to participate by removing debris such as overgrown vegetation, fallen trees, construction materials, plastic bottles, aluminum cans and other such items from the shoreline as well as in the lake. Debris may be deposited in the Waste Management construction dumpster located adjacent to the Public Works building. “Everyone is invited to take part in helping restore and protect our most valuable resource” Womble said.
Womble welcomed Tina Merritt-Smith (Pictured) to the Town staff. Merritt-Smith was hired to fill the vacant position of utilities/customer service representative.
In administrative matters, the Board approved utility releases ($672.35), tax releases ($233.31) and tax refunds ($191.69); accepted bids from Curnie’s General Contractor for repairs from Hurricane Florence for fire department and Public Works buildings, and from Force 1 Roofing & Construction for repairs to the medical office. The board also adopted a capital project ordinance amendment for the multi-use path.
The White Lake Multi-Use Path project has been completed and the final inspection will be scheduled soon. Project work was completed on time.
The municipal complex will be closed Monday, May 27 in observance of Memorial Day. A public works employee will be on call to respond to any water or sewer emergencies.
The Board adjourned Tuesday’s meeting until Tuesday, June 4 at 6 p.m. in order to conduct a budget committee meeting.Share:
