Recreation was a major topic of conversation at the Sparta Board of Mayor and Aldermen at their regular meeting Thursday.
The board again discussed skateboards, roller blades and bicyles on public and private property. In previous meetings, the aldermen considered possible ordinances to address the problems the sports cause to private property, and what enforcement would be utilized. Some damage to private property had been reported as a result of teenagers participating in the sport in parking lots and streets.
At the Thursday meeting, the discussion was more of the creative nature, with the board looking into the possibilities of constructing a special park for the wheeled activities that are so popular with teenagers.
Mayor Claude Bradley told the board he visited a park at Murfreesboro, and believes the city of Sparta can construct one. Alderwoman Margaret Pearson stated grant funds may be available.
However, City Administrator Marty Carmichael explained the deadline was probably too close to apply this time.
Alderman Howard Griffin proposed building the facility without the help of a grant, agreeing with Bradley the park would not be overly expensive to construct. Vice Mayor Hoyte Jones agreed, and after a vote the board decided to look into the construction possibilities.
The board also approved the use of remaining grant funds to continue the Calfkiller River Trail across the river by means of an existing railroad bridge. This action will extend the length of the river walk located along Carter Street, as well as providing a crossing of the stream. Carmichael explained the city was able to procure a long-term lease on the bridge structure. The remaining grant funds should cover the cost of the $41,430 project.
In other action, the board:
-passed the second reading of an ordinance to add a paragraph to the Sparta Municipal Code making a violation of the Tennessee code on financial responsibility a muncipal code violation as well.
– approved a resolution granting authority to the Upper Cumberland Regional Airport to buy and sell properties and enter into agreements with property owners in connection with federal and state grants. Carmichael explained this action would make things operate more easily for the airport, and avoid the possibility of every agreement having to be approved by the board individually.
-approved a property tax change of assessment for Savage Building Center, which was previously left off the city code.
-agreed to the construction of a left turn lane and signal for the intersection of Bockman Way and Wilson Street, to improve traffic flow for the new justice center.
-approved a request by Utilities Superintendent Wayne Rogers to upgrade the pump station on Mayberry Street. The pumps are below ground, Rogers explained, and the work to be done will move the electrical equipment above ground, avoiding excessive repair costs in the future when the station floods.
The board also received a letter from Charter Communications stating the company will raise the rate of expanded basic cable service by $2.80 per month beginning April 1. The company cited increased business cost for the move. Three channels will be added to the basic service, Prevue Channel, EWTN, and PIN.
