The Harlan City Council addressed a number of topics during a meeting on Monday, including the status of a culvert installation and the progress of a sewer project.
Mayor Danny Howard called on City Engineer Leo Miller for a progress report.
Miller told the council one of the culverts was completely installed and the other one was very near completion. He also updated the panel on an ongoing sewer project.
“We turned on Dayhoit trailer park, which brought 57 customers into the system,” Miller said. “We’ve done eight individual customers…so that’s 63 (customers).”
Other topics of discussion included an option concerning road salt. Council member Ann Hensley brought the matter to the panel’s attention.
“The KLC (Kentucky League of Cities) said they were partnering with the KACO (Kentucky Association of Counties) in hosting another road salt auction at no cost to the members,” Hensley explained. “They had several participants last year…you can go online and look at it.”
Howard said the city had worked with the organizations last year.
“I will look at that,” Howard said. “We do have a facility where we can store it (salt).”
Howard then moved on to reports from the department heads.
Harlan City Fire Chief Linette Hutchison reported her department performed 41 commercial inspections, inspected five single family dwellings, conducted one fire safety program, completed 140 man hours of training and responded to five calls.
Harlan City Police Chief informed the council his department drove 10,462 miles, received 2,687 calls, completed 12 accident reports, opened 21 criminal cases, issued 74 citations, performed 37 arrests and served 13 warrants.
