Cookeville City Council awarded a bid to replace the Little Creek pump station and force main Thursday night.
Water and Sewer Director Ronnie Kelly said the underground station will be replaced with a new-style above-ground station. Kelly said the station dates back to 1980 and has outlived its useful life. John T. Hall Construction bid $903,065 for the project. Council approved the bid.
The council set a public hearing for June 18 to consider new emergency procedures for the planning department. The ordinance change would give the department the flexibility to offer developers a six-month extension during emergency situations, such as the recent COVID-19 shutdown.
The council also appointed Dr. Calvin Dickinson to the Historical Zoning Commission for a five-year term. The council also appointed local architect Peter Metts to fill the term of Greg Stamps on the commission. Stamps has moved outside the Cookeville City Limits.
Danny Rader will replace Bob Duncan on the Cookeville Regional Medical Center Board of Trustees.
