City goes forward with repairs to Hill Crest entrance
By SUE WATSON
The Holly Springs Board of Aldermen accepted a low quote of $7,800 from Robert Jackson to repair the columns and iron work at the main gate of Hill Crest Cemetery.
The quote includes $7,000 to rebuild the four stone columns and $800 to repair the iron work according to specifications drawn up by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History. The cemetery is listed in the historic register.
The mayor and board decided to have the work inspected, as it proceeds, to satisfy the board that the job is done to specifications that will satisfy Archives and History and other safety requirements.
In other business August 17, the board:
• adopted a Tennessee Valley Authority imposed fuel cost adjustment of .00659 cents per kilowatt hour. The adjustment costs the average residential customer $2 a month, according to Don Hollingsworth, general manager of the Holly Springs Utility Department.
• held a public hearing for a grant application for a 2010 Housing Investment Partnership grant. The city will apply for $750,000 in home grant funds this year. The board passed two resolutions required to apply for the federal dollars and two motions connected with the application.
