HOFFMAN — The discussion of road construction and upkeep continued from last month during the April town meeting.
Nathaniel Zinnerman returned to the meeting to inquire about the status of his request from March.
“I got a petition signed by all of the residents on the road,” said Zinnerman, “and they all want to get this done. We are desperate to get this done.”
Councilman Daniel Kelly said that currently the town is awaiting word from Raleigh on the road construction.
“We’ve submitted all the paperwork to the senator (Tom McInnis) and we are waiting for him to get back to us,” said Kelly.
McInnis, R-Moore, no longer represents Richmond County but does serve as chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee. Rep. Ben Moss, R-Richmond, is vice chairman of the House Transportation Committee.
Kelly also asked Councilwoman Kyonna Jones to make a study of the cost process regarding how much it will cost for upkeep of Nicholson Drive and James Kelly Drive after paving and construction efforts have concluded.
FINANCE OFFICER REPORT
Minnie Myers, finance officer, updated the board based upon last month’s resolution that was granted for the finance officer to have the ability to transfer funds from one budget item to another.
“According to last month’s resolution,” said Myers, “I am required to report at each board meeting what line items I have moved.
“I adjusted from the zoning budgeted amount to the uncategorized expenses $500. Also from the zoning budget line item, I adjusted $600 to the office supplies postage budget and from capital outlay, I adjusted $3,000 to building and grounds. Insurance and bonds were adjusted $2,450 to insurance for workers comp.”
The Hoffman town offices will be closed on Friday, April 7 for the observance of Good Friday.
The council went into closed session to discuss contract and personnel matters and then adjourned.
