Diane Poole ~ Mayor

 

I want to take this opportunity, once again, to publically thank all of the Citizens of Gleason who supported me in the recent election and have given me the privilege of serving as your mayor for a second term.

I also want to congratulate the other new members of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen which were sworn in  on November 27th.  These include aldermen Jim Phelps, Marcus Hopper, Doug Johnson and Jerry (Bubba) Dunn Jr., who had previously served in the role of  alderman in the past.

Having now, having had the pleasure of working with these new members of the Board during several board meetings, I am impressed with their love of the City of Gleason, their excitement about serving in this leadership role, their ideas concerning ways of enhancing our great little hometown, and their commitment to serving the  Gleason community.  We have already dealt with several  important issues based on their suggestions and I look forward to seeing the City of Gleason continuing to benefit from their input. I am also looking forward to working with new Alderman, Keith Radford, who replaced Alderman Marcus Hopper who resigned in January.

Gleason Board Discusses Police Vehicles

BY DAVID FISHER

Dresden Enterprise

 

GLEASON (August 10) — The Gleason City Board dealt with a lengthy agenda Thursday night including discussions concerning whether or not to repair a police vehicle or purchase a new patrol unit.

 

Police Chief Jeff Hazlewood stated a patrol car’s engine must be repaired, or a new vehicle will need to be purchased. He noted it will cost an estimated $1,600-$1,700 to repair the engine. Hazlewood added one of his department’s Dodge patrol units has been a real “lemon” and suggested purchasing new or used Ford vehicles in the future.

 

He went on to say Gleason Police Department’s two SUVs and two Dodge patrol units are all high mileage vehicles and could break down at any time. He said a new Ford Taurus fully equipped would cost $27,000. It was noted there is currently not enough money in the budget to purchase a new police vehicle.

 

Alderman Keith Radford said, “I can’t see throwing good money after bad,” and was not in favor of repairing the Dodge patrol vehicle. To increase revenue to purchase a new car, Radford suggested bringing back a drug dog to increase drug busts. He said when the drug dog was in use, there was always enough money in the Drug Fund budget to purchase police vehicles.

 

Radford stressed the need to crack down on the drug problem in Gleason, saying this would take care of a lot of other problems as well. Chief Hazlewood indicated he would look into obtaining another drug dog, with the intent of increasing drug screenings to catch more drug offenders.

 

“We need to get it fixed. We won’t get anything out of it the way it is. The motor is still under warranty,” Mayor Poole stated. “I really don’t want to go into debt for a new car at this time,” Alderman Doug Johnson said.

 

The board approved repairing the police car on a motion by Alderman Johnson and second by Alderman Jerry Dunn, Jr. When the question was called on the motion, the board approved the repairs 3-1, with Alderman Johnson, Alderman Dunn, and Mayor Poole voting “yes”; and Alderman Radford casting the only “no” vote. Alderman Jim Phelps was absent.

 

Another problem Chief Hazlewood brought to the attention of the board was the turnover of police officers, due to having the lowest pay in Weakley County. He stated, once officers get certified, they often accept positions at higher-paying police departments. He argued that police officer pay, especially at the entry level, needs to be increased, in order attract and retain officers.

 

The board unanimously approved the second and final reading of an ordinance amending to the city’s new beer ordinance that changes the wording to stipulate that alcohol will not be sold to any “person under the age of 21.”

 

Gleason Fire Chief Jerry Connell requested permission to sell a surplus 1994 International fire engine that hasn’t been used in quite some time. He proposed taking the money raised by the sale of the fire truck and applying it toward the construction of a building to store other units. The board approved Chief Connell’s request.

 

Pete Baumes of Animal Control and Carroll County Humane Society member Dr. Sarah Kidd addressed the board concerning reducing the number of feral cats in the neighborhood. They informed the board that feral cats could be spaded and neutered, then released back into the area.

 

Dr. Kidd stated the Humane Society has received a$10,000 grant for spading and neutering dogs and cats, with half of the money for each type of animal. Baumes explained neutering could be done at no cost to the city. After the presentation, the board agreed to allow them to proceed.

 

Charles Anderson expressed his concerns about motorists driving too fast on heavily congested, narrow streets, in the vicinity of Gleason School. He said that one of the most urgent situations is on East Main Street, where speeders are endangering the lives of children walking or riding their bikes. Anderson asked that something be done to correct the problem.

 

The fact that Gleason P.D. issued 16 juvenile citations in the past month for speeding supports the contention that there is a problem with speeders in the area that needs to be addressed. City Recorder Angela Hunt agreed to look into applying for grants to install flashing traffic lights, speed bumps, or other safety devices.

 

Chief Hazlewood supported the idea of installing flashing traffic lights at school crossings. He suggested asking MTAS to come to Gleason and access the situation to see what could be done.

 

Gleason resident Harry Schippers stated his sidewalk is washing away and requested the city fill it in with gravel to prevent further damage.

 

However, after reviewing photos of the area in question, Alderman Radford stated it appears the city has done its part and he couldn’t see taking any further action at this time. Alderman Johnson said he would go look at the situation in person to determine what action, if any, should be taken.

 

In announcements, it was mentioned that a ceremony will be held at the memorial wall at Snider Park at 4 p.m., September 2, including a presentation by Rolling Thunder.

 

The next regularly scheduled meeting is at 7 p.m., September 14, at Gleason City Hall.
