HOLLY POND, Ala. – The Holly Pond Town Council on Monday evening approved a proposal to make the first of three major repairs to the town’s sewer system by installing new gearbox seals, shafts, bearings and rotors in two pumps. Council members approved an $18,784 request based on an estimate from Tyler McKeller of Living Waters Services. The total for all recommended repairs, including those approved Monday, is estimated to be $43,122.

Easter celebration is on

Councilwoman Julie Ray requested, and the council approved, a community Easter egg hunt at Governor’s Park at 2 p.m. Saturday, Apr. 3, 2021, the day before Easter Sunday. The council approved up to $200 to fund the event. Ray told the council that children will be encouraged to bring their own baskets, but that she will have some baskets available for kids who do not have one of their own.

Road repairs coming

The council approved a $750 request from Mayor Carla Hart to make repairs to Cemetery Road at the site where a culvert was installed last year. The estimate came from the Cullman County Road Department, which will make the repair with DuraPatch material.

The council also heard a request from a local resident to tend to issues on Turkey Hop Road. Mayor Hart responded that the Town is still waiting to hear about a grant applied for under the Rebuild Alabama Act to make the needed repairs to that road.

The Holly Pond Town Council meets at 6 p.m. on the first Monday of each month at the Guy Hunt Library. The public is invited to attend.
