The Ellijay City Council held a regularly scheduled meeting on Monday at the Ellijay City Hall. Old business on the agenda included approval of financial statements and staff reports.
Ellijay city police announced the acceptance of a $28,000 grant for the addition of a new computer network and interview room.
Staff reports also included a report from the fire department that Ellijay’s ISO rating has decreased from 5 to 3, which may result in lower insurance premiums for residents.
The agenda also included several new business items including:
The review and action on the Department of Transportation’s list of roads for the City of Ellijay, was approved unanimously.
The review and action on the Transportation Enhancement Authorizing Resolution, also approved unanimously.
The second reading/review and action on the demolition and removal ordinance for lot 102, the Oaks Subdivision. This item was handled with caution because the council did not wish to vote to demolish the house. Apparently city ordinance requires properties be condemned and demolished within 60 days after the second reading. The homeowner in question is currently in the process of making the necessary corrections to the home and is expected to be finished before the 60 day period. The measure passed with a vote of three to two.
The review and action of property and liability insurance was passed unanimously.
The review and action of the planning commission vacancy passed unanimously.
The review and action of the historic preservation commission was tabled.
No action was taken on the the first reading of the demolition and removal ordinance of 294 and 506 McCutchen Street.
The review and action of the 2013 budget amendment was passed unanimously.
The review and action of the 2013 audit was passed unanimously.
