OPENING PRAYER: Mr. Freeman

PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE: Cullman County Sheriff Matt Gentry

PUBLIC COMMENTS: None

FEDERAL ROAD AID PROJECT: Cullman County Roads Department Engineer John Lang recommended initiating a Federal Aid Project on County Road 222 (near Big Bridge over Smith Lake) from County Road 109 to County Road 96 under Project #: CCP-222-67-18. The Commission approved Resolution 2017-22 affirming the project.

APPROVED PURCHASE: Director James Rollo of the Cullman County Sanitation Department recommended the purchase of a 2018 Heil Lowlift CL6022 as well as twelve (12) containers off the NJPA Cooperative List through Ingram Equipment Co. The vehicle would be for the Sanitation Department’s roll-off operations. The amount is $216,040.13. The Commission approved the purchase.

FIREWORKS DEAL EXTENDED: County Parks & Recreation Director Doug Davenport recommended the extension/renewal of a contract for Independence Day fireworks at Smith Lake Park. Last year’s supplier – Pyro Shows – an international pyrotechnic, special effects and fireworks operation that has shot some of the biggest shows in the United States will return. The Commission approved the extension under the  Bid #1232.

PAVING & MICRO-SURFACING VARIOUS COUNTY ROADS: Engineer Lang reported the upcoming planned pavement and Micro Surfacing of various county roads. The full roster of all roads to be upgraded is not yet available, however, the first focus areas will be the road leading into Cullman Regional Airport as well as a portion of the airport landing area. The Commission approved the work under Bid #1258.

APPROVED PURCHASE: County Parks & Recreation Director Doug Davenport recommended the purchase of a Kubota ZD1211-60 Diesel Zero-turn Mower for Smith Lake Park. The vehicle would come from the best of four local providers and the state bid list – Dixie Tractor Company – in the amount of $12,999. The Commission approved the purchase.

RECOMMENDATION: By Attorney Mark Maclin (Winner & Lee) regarding a Stipulation and Agreement for the Distribution of Interpleader Funds in the matter of Ditech vs. Jimmy Haynes.

This is an arcane matter which County Attorney J. Chad Floyd reported involved unsatisfied tax liens due to the County in the approximate amount of $2,200 for unpaid sales tax generated by the now defunct establishment called East Corp Tire.

The County will have to ‘eat’ the tax loss because the limited liquidated assets of East Corp is being taken by the Internal Revenue service which has a legal claim superior of that to the county.

COMPUTER EQUIPMENT: The County contracts for computer hardware from responsible bidders for desktop computers, laptops, printers, network devices and other computer hardware. Bidding was recently conducted with White River Services being the only responsible bidder making an acceptable offer. The Commission approved Bid # 1259 for a one-year contract with that vendor.

APPOINTMENT: Commissioner Kerry Watson moved to appoint Peggy Day to the Cullman 310 Authority Board for a six (6) year term expiring April 1, 2023. Day is to replace Wayne McCraken on the Board. The Commission approved the appointment.

SPEED LIMIT SET: Engineer Lang recommended a SPEED LIMIT be set on County Road 1814 at 35 mph based on citizen’s requests and a positive investigation into the matter. The Commission approved Resolution 2017-21 affirming the change.

REQUEST: From AGCOR Steel, LLC to have the County vacate a portion of County Road 1615. Cullman County Attorney Chad Floyd suggested that before the matter could proceed, a public hearing must be held. Floyd recommended April 11th as such a date. The Commission approved that request and date.

MINOR SUBDIVISION PLAT: A plat was proposed for Pinnacle Landing Subdivision located in District 1 along Highway 31 and County Road 1285. It involves three separate new building lots. The Commission approved the plat.
