Bonifay City Council cracks down on cleaning up

The council assured Land that was what the new ordinance was for and City Superintendent Jack Marell agreed to maintain the lawn once a month, sending the bill to the owner each time.

“We’re going to do what we can,” said Mayor Lawrence Cloud.

The council also approved a $71,695.76 change order from Hatch Mott MacDonald to the water/sewer project.

Hatch Mott MacDonald representative Shakil Amin explained that this was the last change order before the completion of the project and included the replacement of a stone water pipe, replacement of valves, an electronic gate with restricted access to the Waste Water Facility, pumps, sludge valves and a phone board.

Council members approved of council member Roger Brooks’ request that the city repair broken equipment and dangerous areas to Veterans Park at the estimated cost of $1,500.

“There are broken swings, a piece of equipment is broken and there’s a jagged piece of concrete that needs to be dealt with before a child gets hurt,” said Brooks. “These kids deserve to have a nice and safe park to play in.”

Resident Alan Riley came before the council asking for relief with his $222 plumber bill.
