Pineville Ap­proves Ad­di­tional Funds For Wa­ter Tower

McDonald County Press - - RELIGION/COUNTY - Sally Car­roll

Pineville al­der­men ap­proved mea­sures Tues­day, Oct. 24, to move for­ward with con­struc­tion of a new wa­ter tower.

Public works di­rec­tor Chris Tins­ley said the es­ti­mate for con­crete and the foun­da­tion of the wa­ter tower is ex­pected to come in at $26,000.

Al­der­men ap­proved the ex­tra money needed. Sev­eral vari­ables such as el­e­va­tion of the hill on which the tower will be lo­cated – in ad­di­tion to a soil sur­vey – helped en­gi­neers de­ter­mine that ad­di­tional ma­te­ri­als are needed.

Tins­ley said the 5-foot foot­ing will have an 18-inch thick slab on top of it. The foot­ing will stick out of the ground by three feet on the back­side. En­gi­neers will uti­lize 30 truck­loads of con­crete for the foun­da­tion.

Al­der­men also ap­proved the low­est bid for pip­ing for the wa­ter tank.

In other busi­ness, city coun­cil mem­bers ap­proved an or­di­nance to add Chap­ter 420 Recre­ational Ve­hi­cles to the Code of the City of Pineville. Al­der­men ap­proved it on its first read­ing. The or­di­nance will need a sec­ond read­ing, which will take place at the next city coun­cil meet­ing.

Al­der­men also agreed to go out to bid on a rock ditch that was se­verely dam­aged in the April flood.

Up­com­ing meet­ings in­clude a bud­get dis­cus­sion at 7 p.m., Nov. 9, at City Hall. The meet­ing is open to the public.
