Diane Poole ~ Mayor

 

I want to take this opportunity, once again, to publically thank all of the Citizens of Gleason who supported me in the recent election and have given me the privilege of serving as your mayor for a second term.

I also want to congratulate the other new members of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen which were sworn in  on November 27th.  These include aldermen Jim Phelps, Marcus Hopper, Doug Johnson and Jerry (Bubba) Dunn Jr., who had previously served in the role of  alderman in the past.

Having now, having had the pleasure of working with these new members of the Board during several board meetings, I am impressed with their love of the City of Gleason, their excitement about serving in this leadership role, their ideas concerning ways of enhancing our great little hometown, and their commitment to serving the  Gleason community.  We have already dealt with several  important issues based on their suggestions and I look forward to seeing the City of Gleason continuing to benefit from their input. I am also looking forward to working with new Alderman, Keith Radford, who replaced Alderman Marcus Hopper who resigned in January.

I am also pleased to announce that, partnering with nexbillpay, as of May 1, 2017 it will be possible for Gleason citizens to pay their Water bills, City of Gleason Citations and Property taxes online (see below for more information).

 

Sincerely and Respectfully,

Diane Poole

Gleason Board discusses Eternal Flame Veterans’ Monument:

Miniature golf course coming to town

BY DAVID FISHER

News Writer

 Members of the Gleason Board approved the site for a monument honoring veterans during last Thursday night’s regular monthly meeting.

After reviewing the possible locations for the monument, which features an eternal flame, board members voted to place it in front of Gleason City Hall.

Aldermen discussed other possible sites for the monument, including Snider Park or Huggins Park, but decided it would be best to place it at City Hall, where more people would see it.

The monument was previously located at the front entrance of the former American Legion, Post 166, building at 205 West Union Street in Gleason. When the post disbanded, the building was sold to Jeff Leach, who donated the monument to the City of Gleason.

The wording on the stone reads “We Remember.”

The monument is dedicated to fallen comrades and MIAs of all the wars.

The eternal flame was originally a part of the display, but the internal parts have burned out and it was never repaired. Instead, the flame was replaced with an electric light. To operate the flame once more, it must be attached to a propane gas source.

The board agreed it would be desirable to have the eternal flame burning once again. However, it was mentioned that the type of gas burner currently on the monument is inefficient and costly to operate, which is why the American Legion stopped using it long ago. Alderman Doug Johnson suggested attempting to find a modern and efficient gas burner that would be cheaper to operate.

On a motion by Alderman Jim Phelps, the board voted to place the monument next to the sidewalk at the front entrance of Gleason City Hall.

In other business, Mayor Diane Poole announced that Rolling Hills Miniature Golf Course, owned by Audie and Bobbie Ruble, is Gleason’s newest business. She stated the 18-hole miniature golf course will be situated on a 10-acre tract of land on the south side of Hwy 22 in Gleason. Water and Sewer are being provided to the property in preparation of it being open to the public.

The board approved the first reading of an ordinance updating OSHA requirements, as required by law. The regulation update is mandated by the federal government. “It doesn’t affect anything we’re doing now,” said City Recorder Angela Hunt.

In department report, it was mentioned that the lights have been repaired at Gleason City Dog Pound, and board members toured the McKenzie and Carroll County dog pounds to get ideas for improving the services at Gleason’s pound.

Gleason’s water department recently received a score of 599 by a state inspector, which amounts to a perfect score showing the city is 100 percent compliant with all regulations. The state inspectors noted they were very impressed with the way the facility is maintained, both inside and outside of the building.

Assistant Fire Chief Mark Stafford reported bids are being accepted for the construction of a new addition to Gleason Fire Department. It will measure 40 ft. by 40 ft. with two large bay doors and one regular door for personnel. Fire Chief Jerry Connell says the new building will provide room for the fire department’s vehicles that are currently parked outside to be sheltered from the weather. The structure is being paid for through Gleason Fire Department, which managed to obtain donations for the project.

Public Works Director Dale Stephens stated, after being notified by the state that the landfill needs to be cleaned up in order to be in compliance with federal regulations, the mayors of Gleason and Dresden went to the landfill and spoke with state officials to learn what needed to be done to correct the problem. According to Stephens, the City of Sharon, which is also responsible for keeping up the landfill, stated they did not have the equipment or the manpower to assist in cutting the trees that had grown up around the landfill, but agreed to pay their share of the costs to do the work. A private contractor, who had the equipment needed to cut the saplings, was hired and did the job in a couple of days. Stephens stated it would have taken city employees several weeks to complete the work with the equipment they have.

Alderman Johnson mentioned the street behind the Margraves Building, formerly Trevathan Grocery Store, located at 1125 South Cedar Street, is in bad shape and needs to be repaired.

In announcements, Mayor Poole stated there will be a block party on Tuesday, Aug. 28, to kick off this year’s Tater Town Special. She said there will be fire trucks for the public to view, a corn-hole tournament, chalk coloring, contests for kids and other activities. Additionally, a fireworks show, sponsored by the Gleason Gazelles, is scheduled for Friday night, Aug. 31, providing vegetation is not too dry.

With no further business, the meeting adjourned.
