Bristol Town Council, Aug. 15, 2013

Posted on Aug. 16, 2013 at 1:00 a.m. | Updated on Aug. 16, 2013 at 1:15 p.m.

When: Thursday

Key action: Awarded the bid for the construction of Industrial Drive to Niblock Excavating for $845,717.35. The new road will connect Earthway Industrial Park, where Utilimaster is, to S.R. 15. Also voted against extending sanitary sewer as part of the project, lowering the total to $784,835.60. NIPSCO is slated to move five utility poles the first week of September to begin preparation for the new road.

Other actions:

Ÿ Approved releasing the balance of a lien against Golfview Manor Apartments and seeking no further payments of the unpaid balance on the account. In 2012, a broken water line eight feet underground created water and sewer bills that were much larger than usual.

Ÿ Approved having Umbaugh and Associates do a utility rate study for the water department at a cost of $5,900. The last rate study was done in 1999.

Ÿ Approved an additional appropriation of $16,900 from the police fire cumulative fund for Stortz couplings for the town’s larger fire hydrants.

Ÿ Approved seeking an additional appropriation of $2,800 from the police fire cumulative fund so the Bristol Fire Department siren will work in conjunction with the town’s new tornado sirens.

Ÿ Approved allowing the police department to purchase a new Impala for $22,900, replacing a 2006 police vehicle with 140,000 miles on it.



 FILE - In this undated file photo provided by Raleigh/Wake City-County Bureau of Identification, Kelvin Melton is shown. A North Carolina prosecutor was the intended target of an elaborate kidnapping plot, but the kidnappers looked up the wrong address on the Internet and abducted the prosecutor's father instead, according to an indictment released Tuesday, April 22, 2014. Authorities have said the kidnapping was retaliation for Colleen Janssen's prosecution of Melton for his involvement in a 2011 shooting. Melton, a high-ranking member of the Bloods gang, orchestrated the abduction from behind bars using a cellphone, the indictment said.
