Community clean-up scheduled; city approves officials’ reappointments


CLINTON — The citywide clean-up is scheduled for this year, and the city council reappointed several public officials during its Monday regular meeting.

City clean-up is scheduled this year for June 1-July 30, Monday-Friday from 6 a.m.-3 p.m., commissioner Ken Buchanan announced. One Saturday, July 10, also will be available for dropping clean-up items at Clinton Landfill from 6 a.m.-2 p.m.  The landfill will be closed on July 5.

Clean-up vouchers are available at city hall.  One voucher per household is permitted.

Buchanan also said crews would return shortly to work on city alleyways. 

“Once it dries up a little from theses rains,” Buchanan said.

With golf carts returning to city streets during warmer weather, Buchanan reminded residents to renew their golf cart permits and that any new golf carts must be inspected by the city to receive permits.  Permits cost $100 per year.

“Several are back out now; things seem to be going pretty good with them,” Buchanan said.  “I picked one up myself three days ago, and I’m enjoying it.”

The city council approved several reappointments on Monday. 

City attorney Steve Myers, clerk Cheryl Van Valey and treasurer Clint Lichtenwalter all were reappointed to one-year terms.  City commissioner of accounts and finances Tom Edmunds was reappointed for a one-year term as the city’s financial officer, and Tim Followell was reappointed for one year as public health officer and sexton of the cemetery. The council also reappointed Steve Lobb as city public works director for one year and Steven Page as assistant fire chief for one year.

Commissioner Dan Ballenger announced fire chief Jeff Hoke was leaving the state for a new job, so a new fire chief would be appointed at a later date.

In additional business, the council approved the sale of surplus real estate, a lot located at 1003 E. Washington Street.  Minimum bids accepted for the property will be $7,500.
