City seeks CDBG amendment to pave road

-A A +A
By Jeff M. Hardison

With the approval of the Chiefland Citizen Advisory Task Force (CATF), the Chiefland City Commission on Nov. 26 voted 3-0 to amend its 2005-06 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) to pave part of a road.

The city was awarded a $650,000 CDBG for 19,000 linear feet of new water pipes, 6,300 linear feet of new sewer lines and 14 new fire hydrants in the southwest quadrant of the city. The fiscal year 2005-06 CDBG was extended to expire in early January 2008.

The city had about $150,000 remaining after all of the work was completed. Given this leftover funding, the city is asking the Florida Department of Community Affairs (DCA) to amend its CDBG.

CATF members Floyd Lester, Sylvia McCullar and Icer Roberts unanimously endorsed the amendment. CATV members Ernest Haile and Mary Marshall missed the Nov. 26 meeting.

Mayor M. Teal Pomeroy, and City Commissioners J. Rollin Hudson Jr. and Sammy Cason voted in favor of the amendment.

City commissioners Teresa Barron and Frank Buie missed the meeting Tuesday night.
