City Council to weigh in on urban area transportation plan



Staff Writer


The Lincolnton City Council will take up quite a few items during its regular monthly meeting Thursday night.

First on the agenda is a public hearing on the Lincolnton Urban Area Comprehensive Transportation Plan, followed by an expected vote.

The county’s Board of Commissioners backed the plan Monday night, with its vote dependent on the City Council’s support.

Council members will also consider resolutions approving a Lincolnton Redevelopment Incentive Grant Policy, supporting the Cleanwater Management Trust Fund and in support of Kilah’s Law (a bill to be introduced in the N.C. General Assembly that would bring harsher penalties to those who inflict permanent and debilitating injury to children).

A contract in the amount of $34,750, the same as last year, with Lowdermilk Church & Co., L.L.P. to perform the city’s 2013 audit will also be up for consideration.

Council members will additionally weigh applications for vacancies on the Lincolnton-Lincoln County Airport Authority and the Lincolnton Recreation Commission.

After hearing a request for the speed limit on Turner Street to be reduced, the council will receive updates on the recycling program — with the city to begin pickup in February — and on the status of Phase III of the Marcia H. Cloninger Rail-Trail Project.

The meeting will wrap up with a consideration of quotes to provide water and sewer to the Lincolnton Police Department’s mobile unit off of Hauss Road, followed by a closed session to discuss a personnel-related issue.

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