In Charleston’s Sept. 5 city council meeting, the council will address resolutions for street closures during various parades, as well as city drainage and lime plant treatment issues.

The resolution to temporarily close certain streets for three parades are as follows: 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sept. 29, for Charleston Community High School’s annual Homecoming Parade; 3 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Oct. 21 for Eastern’s annual Homecoming Parade; 9 to 10:30a.m. on Oct. 27 for Jefferson Elementary Grade School’s annual Halloween Parade.

A proposed ordinance to solve the Westchester Subdivision’s issues will also be looked at. According to the ordinance, “It is necessary to acquire a drainage easement in order to be able to construct and maintain the necessary storm sewer to alleviate these detention issues.”

A resolution to purchase lime sludge land application equipment to be used by local farmers will also be on the table at this meeting.

The equipment would help avoid the cost of having the sludge removed from the Water Treatment Plant by the state, which costs an average of $30,000 each year according to the resolution.

The equipment will cost up to $80,000 in FY 18 according to the resolution.

A proclamation by Mayor Brandon Combs to recognize Constitution Week, Sept. 18 through 24, due to the two hundred and thirtieth anniversary of the drafting of the Constitution of the United States of America by the Constitutional Convention, is also on the agenda.
