Lexington City Council members had a light agenda last Tuesday and after one amendment quickly passed the one- and six-year street improvement plan after closing a public hearing on the plan.
In the amendment the city moved the box culvert construction on Adams Street 100 feet north of the intersection with Cattlemen’s Drive into the one-year plan, as it was already completed in December of 2017.
In addition, they moved construction of three streets in the Southwest Addition into the one-year plan, as the developer is ready to start housing construction there. They will include: Eisenhower Drive from Walnut Street to Locust Street, Roosevelt Drive from Walnut Street to Locust Street, and Cedar Street from Eisenhower Drive to Roosevelt Drive.
In other new business the council voted to suspend the rules and pass on first and final reading an ordinance designating the law firm of Louthan and Wilson, P.C., specifically Beverly Bogle Louthan and Todd Wilson, as special prosecutors for the City of Lexington.
At 5:38 p.m. the council voted to go into executive session for their annual discussion on the city manager’s job performance. At 5:51 p.m. they voted to come out of executive session with no action taken.
The next council meeting will be on March 27 at 5:30 p.m.
