Martin City Board Meeting

May 14th, 2013 - By Steve James

At Monday night’s Martin City Board Meeting, Mayor Randy Brundige and Aldermen approved a $1500 dollar grant for the Hope of Martin group to help with new housing they’re trying to build.

The property is the former trailer park located on Meek and Highland Streets in Martin.

The land currently has $1500 dollars in outstanding city property taxes, so the board proposed this grant that will then be reissued to the city to cover the taxes.

Hope of Martin plans to build nine duplexes on the property to help area residents with their housing needs.

The land still owes some county property taxes, but the Weakley County Commission is discussing awarding a similar grant to cover the costs.

In other business, Martin Police chief David Moore discussed a recent complaint his department received about buses traveling too fast on the Church Street area during the morning hours.

Chief Moore said officers ran radar checks for three straight days in the area and found the buses never went above 25 miles per hour. Chief Moore said he’ll report these findings to the resident that brought up the complaint.

The board also made two appointments to the Weakley County Economic Development Board. Mr. Darrell Baylock will replace Ms. Hollie Holt on the board and Larry Alexander was reappointed to his position.

The Martin Board will meet again next month on Tuesday June the 4th at 5:15 for their informal meeting.
