The Pineville Board of Al­der­man, at its meet­ing Tues­day night, dis­cussed a pre­ven­ta­tive main­te­nance agree­ment for over­head doors.

City Clerk Melissa Ziemi­anin said the agree­ment would cost $650 per visit. The city has 17 over­head doors.

Mar­shal Chris Owens said the city broke two springs on over­head doors last year and did not re­al­ize it and kept us­ing the doors, caus­ing the gears to be stripped.

“If some­one were rou­tinely look­ing at those, it prob­a­bly would have been caught,” he said.

Ziemi­anin said the city spent about $5,000 last year on the over­head doors.

The board ap­proved the pre­ven­ta­tive main­te­nance agree­ment.

Also on Tues­day, the board looked at two new poli­cies from the mar­shal’s of­fice. One pol­icy was re­gard­ing when and how to pur­sue (in a po­lice car), and the other was about how to rec­og­nize in­di­vid­u­als with men­tal ill­ness.

Mayor Pro Tem Scott Den­nis asked Owens how closely the poli­cies matched state poli­cies. Owens said the lo­cal poli­cies are a lit­tle more spe­cific. Den­nis also said the pol­icy on pur­suits did not ad­dress as­sist­ing other cities. Owens said the pol­icy was only in­tended to ad­dress pur­suits ini­ti­ated by Pineville of­fi­cers.

The board adopted the pol­icy on in­di­vid­u­als with men­tal ill­ness but tabled the one on pur­suits.

Owens said he would be bring­ing more poli­cies be­fore the board, as his poli­cies date back to 1997 and need to be up­dated.

In other busi­ness, the board wrote off non­col­lectable taxes for 2016 and 2017 and ap­proved bills in the amount of $23,182.
