Florence fire-hydrant vandal will ‘repaint’ of his transgressions

ORIGINALLY WRITTEN MICHELLE AVIS
At the Sept. 18 meeting of the Florence City Council, Fire Chief Tim Parmley reported that the person who had vandalized a fire hydrant will be repainting it the correct color.

Parmley also said the fire department has installed new communications radios in the fire trucks and made repairs to the department’s generator.

Del Leeds, Americans with Disabilities Act compliance officer, presented new ADA guidelines to the council.

Regulations now require clear differentiation of the bottom two feet of newly constructed access ramps.

Leeds said although old ramps won’t need to be updated, any future construction must meet the new standard.

Councilor Bryan Harper suggested city employees be paid every two weeks instead of twice monthly. Ordinances will be reviewed before deciding.

In other business, the council:

heard that the list of names of people buried in the Hillcrest Cemetery has been laminated and put up in the cemetery gazebo.

approved a request to reduce a local business’s water bill after a water leak.

will pay $175 for City Clerk Darla Gore’s registration fee and hotel room while she attends a city clerks’ conference.
