Tue, 10/06/2015 - 11:09 RCN Newsdesk
Fort Mitchell City Council met briefly Monday evening and took another step forward in regards to the cable television transfer with Time Warner Cable, passing a resolution. Councilman Mike Stoeckle, the city’s representative on the regional board, said the next step that has to take place is other cities’ approval of the transfer request.
City Administrator Sharmili Reddy said the city has received 15 applications to date regarding the fire chief’s opening and there are two weeks left to submit an application to the city for all interested applicants.
Furthermore, Reddy said the city has submitted an application to the state for the prospective sidewalk project along Orphanage Road, saying they should hear from Governor Steve Beshear’s office by December because he will in all likelihood take some sort of action on the project before his term runs out, she said.
The recreation committee will meet on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m., committee-head Stoeckle said. Councilman Joe Hayes reported that the public works committee talked about everything from the selection process of city engineers, communication with residents on street projects, restoration of grass, yard areas, city signage and upcoming road projects.
A waste disposal day for area residents will take place on October 17 from 9-2 p.m. at the Florence Freedom ballpark.
