Pocahontas City Council closes parts of two unused streets for safety issues
The Pocahontas City Council began its monthly meeting Tuesday with a public meeting regarding the closure of portion of West Maple and Hamil Streets as required by the passage of an ordinance in January rezoning property at 1602 Thomasville.
City Attorney Joe Grider explained that the Council had discussed the fact that portions of West Maple coming off Thomasville needs to be closed for safety issues with the increase in busi nesses with First National Bank and Harps and the other business being rezoned that caused some issues with the highway department. Nobody objected to that, and there were no objections at the public hearing held Tuesday. The closed portion of the street now reverts to the landowners on either side.
Fire Chief Scott Baltz presented to the council a proposed to purchase property on Hwy. 62 West to use as a fire station.
