Midway’s new city hall complex is rapidly taking shape—the cupola is now atop the building—and Mayor Levern Clancy is hoping the city can occupy the building in October.
Midway now holds council meetings in the courtroom of the police station on Oglethorpe Highway and uses office space in Midway Mall.
Also at Midway’s council meeting Monday Clancy told the council work was progressing on the new Burger King at the intersection of Islands Highway and I-95. Construction on the city’s replacement water flow meter is expected to start this month, Clancy said.
Two bidders on the roof repair for the police station were at the council meeting. Clancy asked the representative of H.B. Roofing to step outside while his competitor, JAJ Roofing, made his presentation. When the turn of H.B Roofing came their representative was nowhere to be found. The council accepted a bid from JAJ Roofing for the police station work at a cost of $14,817.
The council planned to discuss amending the hotel-motel tax ordinance, debris on Martin Road and an easement in Hunters Ridge Subdivision but the city attorney was a no-show, forcing the council to delay action on these matters.
The council accepted recommendations to grant a home business license to Frazier and Green Lawn Care and approved a sign for Compass Insurance Co. in Midway Mall. O’Reilly Auto Parts also received sign approval.
