Bonifay Council to ‘help do something for the kids’

After much discussion the Council agreed to table the matter until all avenues could be considered and would be brought up again at the next meeting.

Griffith Subdivision was brought up again with City Attorney Lucas Taylor explaining the past meetings and where they were at now.

A developer came in with a proposed subdivision, paving a road through private property and proposed to give it to the city for maintenance, Taylor explained, but the city disapproved because of the road being damaged.

The developer then returned and agreed to repair the roads and then it was brought to the developer’s attention that the subdivision could now be tied into the city’s sewer system with the developer saying they didn’t think it wasn’t economically feasible because before they would’ve had to include a lift station for the residential units.

“Basically the burden is on the developer as to if they want to reconfigure to attach to the sewer or if they want to continue with septic tanks,” said Taylor.

Council member Roger Brooks informed the Council that there were several phone calls made from parents asking when the water park at Middlebrooks Park would be turned back on.

After much discussion the Council agreed to have a city employee to turn on the water from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day from Monday to Saturday and from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays for the summer starting Monday, May 5.
