CITY CORNER by Mayor Brent Hinckley

 

      The first week of the year is usually a busy and often confusing period when there are a number of tasks to end one year and get the new year started in the right directions.  Last week our County Judge, Jerry Bearden, did a great job of getting a change that I believe will positively impact our traffic around the square and through town.   The final week of the year we had one of the very large truck loads transporting one of the long blades for a wind turbine run into a light pole on the northeast corner of the square and get hung up on it for several hours.  That was one of several  accidents caused by oversize loads, and it snarled traffic and provided “entertainment” for everyone on the Square while bringing all commerce to a standstill.   Judge Bearden got on the phone and tracked down the right decision makers in the right state agency, and now we have a limitation on oversize loads moving through Mason that should limit the problems and reroute the very large wind turbine parts.  In the past week it has already reduced the confusion of traffic on the square with the elimination of the caravans of loads that have come through in the past.  Thanks Jerry, for a quick response to a problem that was effecting a variety of residents, businesses and some of the tourists. 

      At the City we are working on several other significant projects that will effect different areas of our community.  We are working to directly address the radionuclide issue in the water system, and I anticipate that during the next several months we will have specific plans to correct the problems and financing obligations identified to make it happen.  This is a “million dollar” problem that we have been aware of for years and have now come to a good decision on how to treat the water and meet the regulations on this area of our public water system.  There are still several steps and decisions to be made, but we are on the way to having a workable solution to another long-term problem.  To address this and a couple of other specific concerns, I am calling a special meeting of the City Commission for later this month, on Monday, January 23 at 5:30 pm at the Eckert Civic Center and as always this meeting is open to anyone who would like to come and learn more of what goes on in making decisions for our community.

       One of the other items that will be discussed at that special meeting is calling an election to vote on candidates for two of the positions on our City Commission.  The election will not be until May 6th later this spring,  but at this time we need to follow the proper steps to set the election schedule in motion.  The two positions up for election are District 2 Commissioner that is currently served by Bonnie Beam, and District 4 Commissioner that has been served for several years by William Beaty, Jr.   If anyone has an interest in running for a position on the City Commission, our City Secretary  Pattie Grote can provide information, and the period for filing for a place on the ballot begins officially on January 18 and runs until February 17.  Attending the regular City Commission meetings is the best way to be aware of the issues and concerns that your municipal government is dealing with, and if you want to be in a position to positively affect the improvements of our community then I would encourage you to consider running for an elected position.   Mason is a great hometown, and working together with concerned and positive public input we will continue to improve our community.
