Claflin Council approves pool lift

POSTED: April 6, 2012 7:00 a.m.

Members of the Claflin City Council voted March 12 to purchase a portable pool lift so the pool is in compliance with the federal Americans With Disabilities Act and can reopen.
The $6,000 cost of the lift will come from the city’s equipment reserve fund.
Council members also discussed the community building at their regular meeting at the city building.
The community center building at 220 Second St. will be demolished over the winter after an asbestos inspection is done. Rules and regulations for the new community center at 406 Main were tabled until the April meeting. Council members accepted a job description for a cleaning person with the addition of  “recommend to city any charges for clean up after an event.”
City superintendent Richard Hayes also has designed plans for the parking lot and playground equipment at the new community center.
In other business:
• Hayes reviewed his landscaping plan for City Hall. It consists of removing two trees, pouring new sidewalk and curbing, putting in edging and mulch, moving the billboard closer to the sidewalk and lighting it and installing a sprinkler system. Council members approved removal of the trees and the sidewalk and curbing work. The rest of the project will be done over the next two years.
• Council members tabled until their April meeting a request to donate $1,500 to Claflin’s jubilee, as the city did a year ago for the All School Reunion. The jubilee is set for May 26.
• The yard at 215 Fourth St. has been cleaned up; however, work remains on the structure. City attorney Bob Suelter will call the property owner’s attorney and report back to the council at its April meeting.
• Murine Prosser was appointed to the Claflin Housing Authority to fill the seat vacated by Charles Disque.
• Council members agreed to donate a family pool pass to the grade school for its carnival, proceeds of which will go to purchase playground equipment.
• City crews will staff the trash bins most of the time during cleanup week, April 28-May 6.
