Special meeting planned for Morenci council 5.29

Posted in 2008 May

Morenci city council will meet in a special session at 5:30 p.m. Thursday to discuss two agenda items.

Council members will discuss a federal grant to replace the Main Street bridge at the east end of town, just before Weston Road. The estimated cost would result in a $15,000 payment by the city, with a grant covering 95 percent of the cost.

If the city is chosen to receive the grant, construction would be slated for 2011.

The semi-annual inspection determined no immediate need for replacement, said city administrator/clerk Renée Schroeder, but the report indicated the need for a new bridge in next few years.

In addition, council members are expected to decide on a request by SBA Communications for a lump sump lease payment for land in the industrial park where a communications tower stands.

At a special meeting, only the items listed on the agenda can be discussed.
