Hulbert trustees queried about street status

HULBERT — A Hulbert citizen queried the town’s board of trustees about land status during a meeting Thursday night.

Raymond Chester, who wants to build on property adjacent to the Hulbert Community Library, asked trustees whether the plat designating East Second Street between North Elm Street and Broadway Street is still open.

Chester said a check of Cherokee County records indicated the road was closed, but Trustee George Truitt said he believed the plat was still open, “to my knowledge.”

The trustees suggested Chester acquire documentation from the county about the plat, and that the city of Hulbert check its records for any change of status. No action was taken.

The agenda item dealing with a declaration of surplus property was tabled, pending completion of the assessment.

The trustees also heard the fire and police reports.

During the preceding meeting of the Hulbert Public Works Authority, the trustee          s listened to the superintendent’s report, and also heard from Rachel Dallis, who reported that a “Biggest Loser”-style competition would begin before the end of January.

Dallis said the competition would be held in partnership with Reaching Our Hulbert Community and NeoHealth and be open to Hulbert citizens, former citizens and those who work in town.

She asked the trustees if the city would purchase a set of scales for the male and female winners. The trustees said the city would be interested.

WHAT’S NEXT

The next regular meeting of the trustees is Thursday, Feb.13, at 6 p.m., in the Hulbert Town Hall building.
