Council to consider drought policy

Pulaski Town Council will consider implementing a drought policy at its work session Tuesday, in the event drought conditions continue through this winter.
In his summary of items on Tuesday’s agenda, Town Manager John Hawley points out that Gatewood Reservoir hasn’t reached a level where the town feels it would be necessary to start a conservation program.
However, forecasts call for the drought to continue through the winter, so there is a possibility conservation measures may eventually be necessary, Hawley says. Levels are being monitored.
The meeting begins at 5 p.m. in the town council meeting room on the second floor of the Pulaski Municipal Building on First Street N.W.
Other items on the agenda include:
• A review of town council rules and procedures by Town Attorney David Warburton.
• A request from the town’s employee committee for a second personal day to be added to employee benefits.
• Review of an ID theft policy local utility departments are required to adopt by Nov. 1.
• Review of an Economic Adjustment Strategy.
• Deciding whether to take part in a project with Landmark Developers of North Carolina to convert Jefferson School into residential apartments. Participation could include a $10,000 loan to be repaid from grant funds obtained by Landmark, waiver of building permit and water/sewer connection fees, and allowing a real estate tax abatement for a period of time.
• Discussion of Frontier Village and how to proceed with addressing the project.

• Consideration of a proposed lease contract with Pulaski Baseball Inc., allowing PBI to continue using Calfee Park for minor league teams.
