Despite a cold front and snow flurries of snow Corinth City Commissioners met Feb. 7.

Most of the discussion centered on how to spend the approximately $52,000 remaining in the Marathon Drive project.

Mayor Billy Hill said he instructed Perfect-A-Waste to purchase seven air relief valves and also ordered three more Liberty brand sewage pumps and may order six or seven more of these.  Hill said there is discussion of combining some of the pump stations.

“Having this left over money is a good problem to have, but (we) don’t want to just throw money out there just to throw money away,” Hill said.

He solicited members for any ideas they may have for potential problems in the sewer system the monies might be used toward repair/replacement.

Commission members also:
• Will review information from Kentucky’s Department of Fish and Wildlife’s proposal for Corinth Lake and then vote on it during the March meeting.
• Consider a request from the Corinth Fire Department for assistance in purchasing one or more items.
• Voted three-to-one to allow Fitness For Life Around Grant County (FFLAG) to use the city park building from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesdays during the Biggest Winner in April.
• Discussed Williamstown’s extension of Broadband and fiber optic cable to the Corinth area.  Completion is predicted for March/April; depending on the weather, etc.  Hill said  an informational concerning the project would be announced in the Grant County News and Express as soon as a date was selected.
• Approved Pete Whaley as the city’s attorney. Whaley replaces April Gatlin who has moved.
• Appointed Paige Allen as Vice-Mayor for the commission.
