Jemison Council gives roads update

The Jemison City Council discussed road issues at a short meeting Monday.

Councilmembers mentioned several roads where tree limbs and undergrowth had been cut back recently, or roads that were on the list for such work in the near future: County Road 151, Pine Hill Road, County Road 42, Brenda Lane, Jemison Drive and Ellison Road.

“Some of these are so bad that it’s almost like a one-lane road coming through there,” Mayor Eddie Reed said.

The city will receive help from Chilton County employees on some of the projects.

In other business, the council:

•Bought an ad in The Clanton Advertiser’s annual high school football preview publication for $875.

•Reissued a $750 donation to the Jemison High School Blue Regiment Marching Band. The council approved in the spring of 2010 a $1,500 donation to help purchase instruments, but because of a mix-up the money wasn’t issued to the school.

Band representative Rex Bittle brought the issue back before the council in April, when the council decided to issue half of the money then and the other half at a later date.

Bittle asked the council Monday if the band would still receive the second half of the donation, and the council voted unanimously to issue the money.
