Council to discuss street name for safety complex

by Celia Shortt

The Newnan City Council will continue its discussion on naming the future street in front of the new public safety complex at its next meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 26.

The meeting will be held at City Hall on LaGrange Street and begins at 6:30 p.m.

The future street will be a connector road for the new complex, and at the Nov. 12 meeting, the council discussed naming it after Rev. Joseph E. Hannah. Hannah was a prominent pastor of Newnan Presbyterian Church. The request to rename the road was referred to city staff for review and recommendations.

Other business items at Tuesday’s city council meeting:

• The council will vote on resolutions certifying the results for the City of Newnan’s Municipal Election and for 2013 holiday pay.

• The council will vote on an ordinance to authorize the commitment of $1.5 million for the Newnan Hospital Redevelopment project. These funds are from the General Fund Unassigned Fund Balance to the General Fund Committed Fund Balance, specifically for debt repayment of the Downtown Development Authority note authorized for the project.

• The council will vote on requesting assistance in funding for certain street repair under the state’s Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant Program.

• The council will vote on a contract for the electric capacity reserves for 2014 with Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia Power of Marietta. The council has a similar contract in place for 2013.

• The council will hear a request to schedule a public hearing for property at 452 E. Broad Street on Jan. 28, 2014 and a request for a six-month extension for 112 Greenville Street.

• The council will continue a public hearing for property at 125 LaGrange Street with a resolution to repair or demolish.
