City to consider fireworks, roof service contracts



Staff Writer


The Lincolnton City Council is set to consider various contracts and conduct zoning public hearings at its meeting Thursday night.

City Manager Jeff Emory will present council members with each contract up for consideration, the last of which is one with East Coast Pyrotechnics for $10,000 to provide the city’s fireworks for the year’s July 4th celebration.

Council members will also weigh a contract for the cleaning of the City Hall roof and duct system. Roof repairs would be conducted by Johnson’s Roof Service for nearly $6,000, while Advanta Clean would perform the duct work for $2,470 if approved.

Emory will also present a contract between the city and Lincoln County regarding a facilities charge for lighting at Gaston College’s Lincolnton campus. A note in the meeting’s agenda states that a public hearing will be required at the next meeting to amend the fee schedule.

Also on the agenda, council members will conduct a public hearing regarding an application from Pegasus Tower Company for the renewal of a conditional-use permit issued in 2007 that would allow for the construction of a 195-feet-tall steel lattice communication tower in the residential-25 district.

The subject property is located on the west side of Startown Road, about 1,500 feet south of the intersection of Startown Road and Clark Creek Road.

Other items on the agenda include:

Steve Peeler, director of the city’s Public Works and Utilities Department, will present a resolution to establish and offer a lighting rebate program. A public hearing will be required at March’s meeting to amend the fee schedule.

There will be continued discussion of, and a proposal to amend, the city’s fee schedule regarding deposits for residential customers. A public hearing on this issue will also be required at the next meeting.

Planning Director Laura Simmons will present an update on the status of Phase III of the Marcia H. Cloninger Rail-Trail Project and on Ingles. At the January meeting, Simmons said her staff has been informed by a representative with the grocery chain that its current plans are to submit an application for a building permit and begin construction later in the year, with the typical construction period lasting eight months.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at City Hall and is open to the public.
