Advisory board to help in growth areas
By SUE WATSON
The Marshall County Board of Supervisors has OK’d a five-member advisory board to help keep up with a high number of rezoning requests in the northern one-quarter of District 3 which includes Barton, Cayce and the Deer Creek areas.
The advisory board will work with supervisor Keith Taylor and the zoning department to keep abreast of rapid growth in the northern portion of the district.
Taylor said the committee will serve a public relations need in the area and any requests for rezoning, which are coming in at a clip of about one a week, will be presented to the committee.
“They will have no bearing in decisions,” Taylor said. “It will serve as an extra buffer. In my district every street has a homeowners’ association and a lot of people in the area have a lot of good ideas on how we need to develop Barton.”
The area covered by the advisory board runs from Deer Creek on Highway 309 North to the Desoto County line on the west, to Cayce Road on the east and everything north of that up to the state line.
Dumpsters will be placed around the county for the week November 14-21, 2007, and the week of January 2-9, 2008 to assist residents in fall/winter cleanup. The board of supervisors set these two weeks for residents to clean out their sheds and clean up their homesteads. Household trash, agricultural and industrial grade chemicals and corrosive substances, old paints and other caustic substances, and brush should not be placed in these bins.
Old furniture, mattresses, boards and old brick/masonry/construction debris can be disposed in the containers.
No waste tires, food wastes, old batteries, or air conditioners or refrigerators that have not had the freon removed professionally are to be placed in the bins.
Old washers, dryers, stoves, metal, yard machinery, lawn mowers, tillers and junk in general can be discarded in these bins as well as air conditioners and refrigerators that have had the freon removed.
A container will be placed at Laws Hill Community Center, Cayce Fire Department, Barber Road at the Highway 349 South intersection, Slayden Community Center, Chulahoma Community Center, Waterford at the railroad tracks, Watson Community Center, Byhalia Fire Department, Highway 309 and Deer Creek Road, Matthews Corner voting precinct, Lake Estates at Scott Drive, Marianna and Wall Hill voting precincts, Early Grove Community Center, Bethlehem Fire Department and Victoria Community Center.
The Marshall County Rubbish Pit and white goods collection site is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday and Saturday.
