Museum could break ground in early June

The Town of Pulaski is hoping to break ground for its new museum early next month.
Members of Pulaski Town Council said recently they would like to see the town hold a ceremony in early June to not only break ground for the new museum, but also to officially sign an agreement with the Brockmeyer family concerning the display of Dr. Milton Brockmeyer’s train set replica of the town inside the museum.
A revised agreement pertaining to the train display recently was developed for review by Town Attorney David Warburton.
Some of the revisions include provisions that the train set would not be donated to the town if the museum is not constructed, that the train set will not be moved until it can be placed in the museum, and that the town will be responsible for any damage done to the Brockmeyer home in the process of removing the train set.
Mayor Jeff Worrell said the signing of the agreement “sounds like good timing because we (town officials) had spoken of having some kind of groundbreaking” in early June too.
Warburton indicated there will have to be an insurance appraisal of the train set before it is moved, so there will be “some cost” associated with the appraisal.
The town also is in the process of establishing a committee to review the items recovered from the train station museum.
Worrell said it will be up to the committee to decide what can and cannot be salvaged for the new museum, as well as deciding what new donation to accept and what not to accept.
“There’s going to be some tough decisions to be made,” the mayor said of the committee’s task.
Councilman Larry Clevenger will serve as the council’s representative on the committee.
