Olive Hill City Council heard an update on the water treatment plant project from Harshaw-Trane during their regular August meeting on Tuesday. A representative with the company explained to council they had some issues with the blend of a concrete, but they worked that issue out and are now “back on track.” When, exactly, they will start or expect to complete work is still unknown, however. The Trane representative told councilman Chris Bledsoe they couldn’t project any firm dates at this point, in response to Bledsoe’s questions about the timeline, but they still expect to be completely finished before 2022 draws to a close. 

Council also heard from American Electric Power on the contract renewal process, and adopted the replacement resolution trading ownership of State Highway 986 for Cross Street between the city and the state on second reading. 

Council also moved to accept treasurer’s reports for the month of July – including the bank balances report, utility and general fund check registers, and statements of operations – and department reports from police, fire and code enforcement. 

Council also recognized councilman Allen Stapleton for his time with the fire department. Stapleton, with 57 years of service in his community, has been a volunteer firefighter since 1964. 

He was recently recognized by the fire department with the department’s training facility named the Allen Stapleton Training Center in his honor.
