In addition to the three council members in attendance, included Tim Dailey, who came aboard the city council in January, Mayor Dor- othy Clemons, and City Clerk Rob Lane. After Mayor Clemons called the meeting to 'order, roll was taken, and minutes from last month's meeting were read. During discussion of the January meeting, the members were re- minded that the town's general fund was down $3,547.21, mainly due to sewer costs from the new sewer system being installed in town. The sewer fund now has $14,271. A mo- tor also went bad on one of the town's sewer pumps costing Sharps- burg $1,448. The money spent in annexing the sewer in Tater Town was reimbursable though, with money due to be re- turned to the city's sew- er fund at any time. "So we'll be ok," said City Clerk Lane. After the old minutes were approved, discus- sion ensued over a ru- mor going around the county, that the city had received a million dol- lars for the new sewer system. Mayor Clemons said that this was prob- ably due to a misunder- standing. Actually, the correct statement was that the new sewer sys- tem will cost close to a million dollars when completed. The Sharpsburg Com- munity Day was the next topic of discussion. Sandra Moore Krajew- ski, author of several books including, "There are no lighthouses in Kentucky," Sharpsburg native, and daughter of Lucinda Moore, has been in contact with Mayor Clemons. The Mayor said that Krajewski, famous for her children's books, said that she will be in attendance during the all day community day for a book signing. The theme for this year's community day will be focused on the 1940's in Sharpsburg. One of the things that the city is in search of for the event, is a 1948 Sharpsburg Senior class trip video taken in the Smokey Mountains. If it can be found, the city would like to use it in the day's events. Something is also in the works for the veter- ans of WWII, since the event is focusing in on the 1940's. Any still shots from the 40's if found (pertaining to Sharpsburg), is also needed. City Clerk Lane would like to copy and return them. One of the main prob- lems in the Sharpsburg area, according to the council members, is a problem in the way that sewer bills are handled. An issue was raised about how cer- tain people are being overcharged on their bill. Apparently, when someone uses water for purposes that does not involve the water going down the drain, they are still being charged a sewer charge for that water. After much discussion on the issue, this new rule was put on the re- cord, and approved upon by the council: "The City of Sharps- burg will consider, on a case by case basis, re- quests for a reduction in sewer bills due to wa- ter leaks and the fill- ing of swimming pools. Homeowners will ap- pear before council with proof or explanation of the problem that creat- ed the situation. Hom- eowners will also bring a copy of their previous month's bill. Homeown- ers are still expected to pay their bill, and the city will then refund what it deems appropri- ate." Other topics discussed at the February meeting include: • New tax forms • Planning of Sharps- burg website • Sewer's smoke screening • Community center The regular monthly meeting for the month of March will be held at the City Hall in Sharps- burg on March 3rd, at 7pm.
