Mt. Pleasant City Council Personnel and Finance committee met this morning. The committee has several recommendations for the full council that deal with requests for funding. The largest is $100,000 for the Union Block project. Exterior Improvement grant funds would be used. It would also mean the city wouldn’t be able to make any of these grants for the next five years. This would bring the total city contribution to the project $200,000. Other funding recommendations….$500 for the red flag tour, $2,500 for the 4th of July celebration and $2,000 for Festival of Lights. The committee will recommend the council approve contracting with Jean C Wiley to build new bigger restrooms at the East Lake Softball complex in the amount of $47,469. And finally, it was decided that a lease purchase agreement for a new street vac made more sense instead of buying a new one outright.
