The Thomaston City council approved a resolution for budget revision #4 for 2010 at Tuesday’s meeting.
The city will transfer $500,000 from a reserve account for downtown street repairs, paving and the water line project that is underway. Mayor Hays Arnold said it’s the largest infrastructure project in the cities history and things will be better once it’s completed. The Georgia Department of Transportation is on board for some of the paving.
In other action, the demolition ordinance was amended to add safeguards due to issues that surfaced with the Martha Mills and Hotel Upson demolition projects. Under it’s terms, a building can’t be gutted and the walls left standing; basements and concrete floors must be removed and grassed. A method to determine square footage of a building was also added.
