MAMMOTH SPRING -- The Mammoth Spring City Council met in regular session Sept. 10 at Mammoth Spring City Hall.
Due to the recent resignation of councilman Bill Tibbits, the council voted to appoint Peggy Smith to fill his position. Smith was given the oath of office as Ward II Councilman Sept. 13 by Fulton County Quorum Court member Jimmy Marler at city hall. Tibbits resigned his position due to moving out of the Mammoth Spring city limits.
The developers of two new subdivisions on Fairview Road, Charles McCullough and Allen Ramsua, were at the council meeting and said they would pay for the installation of a pressure pump for the existing water line to the new development. Earlier in the year the council approved serving the new development with water even though it is outside the Mammoth Spring city limits. Mayor Pace said there will be two different subdivisions built. One with 35 lots and the other with 40 plus lots.
Former councilman Bill Tibbits served on the city's Tree City USA Board of Directors. Due to his moving, a new board member was needed and councilman Danny Busch agreed to fill the spot.
The council discussed the water pressure problem on River Bend Road in the city. Many residents in that area of the city have expressed a problem with having too much water pressure. The council discussed the possibility of placing a water pressure deduction devise on the main line. No vote was made on the issue.
Fall street work in the city was also discussed. King Asphalt of Thayer received the bid to do the work. Streets that need to be resurfaced include Bethal, Tate, Gold Smith, Walker and Archer.
Pace said the street work would continue as long as the city budget allowed.
