During Monday evening’s Elizabethtown Town Council meeting, Mayor Campbell thanked all the departments and Town staff for their preparations for Hurricane Dorian. “We were so blessed to have missed the destruction and devastation from the storm,” said Campbell.
Police Chief Tony Parrish explained a new law that becomes effective October 1st to the Town Council. The law requires transportation services of an involuntary commitment respondent must be provided by the city or county of residence. Parrish noted that the Sheriff’s Department will be providing out of county transportation for Elizabethtown residents once the respondent is brought to the Sheriff’s Department. Council approved the resolution supporting Involuntary Commitment Transportation Services as presented.
In administrative matters, Council approved extension for the contract period for the streetscape project; approved engineering and design services for The Wooten Company for the Elizabethtown Cemetery Stabilization Project; approved Sage Design for design services for the Greene’s Lake Project; approved Verizon Wireless Land and Water Lease agreement; approved proposal from DeVane Builders for completion of renovations to the Bladen Crisis Building; and approved budget amendments, Tax Releases and monthly budget report.
