City council meets Tuesday

Franklin City Council members meet Tuesday in regular session for June.

Guests include a representative of the city’s waste pickup service at the request of Councilman Chuck Autin.

It will be the second time the company has been called on the carpet by Autin for what he calls improper and at some times destructive handling of waste collection in the city.

Also scheduled to appear is Irvin Lewis, representing the Centerville Booster Club.

City Inspector Blake Steiner will present a flood variance request from St. Mary Community Action Agency on behalf of a property at 500G Ninth St.; two condemnation hearings; and an update on the Safe Route to Schools project.

Dainae Prejean, utilities director, will update the council on the manhole on Mary Lee Street at the request of Councilman Dale Rogers.

Police Chief Sabria McGuire will discuss a traffic survey at Carl C. Foulcard Drive and Pine Street.

Ordinances for introduction include disposing of surplus property, and designating the speed limit on Perret Street.

For adoption, ordinances include setting the speed limit on Hanson Street and two ordinances setting tax assessment rates.

There are resolutions lifting the open container law for the Centerville Booster Club and Hanson Baseball Alumni tournament; authorizing the mayor to “execute appropriate release documents resolving disputed claim and any prospective litigation for which formal written demand has been made; support of a grant funding for the Bayou Beaux Arts and Dance Program; and requesting repairs to the railroad crossings on Willow Street and Northwest Boulevard.

Mayor Raymond Harris is slated to recommend reappointment of Dorothy Bradley to the Franklin Civil Service board.

The council meets at 6 p.m. at City Hall on Iberia Street.
