Liberty City Council met in regular session Monday.
Mayor Sam Haddad says the city is awaiting approval on a Community Development Block Grant for the wastewater system rehabilitation project. The mayor says he hopes to have that approved by Christmas.
The council approved a resolution for Mayor Haddad to sign an agreement with the Commonwealth approving a grant of just over $210,000 for the Lake Liberty Park project.
The only other item on the agenda was a first reading of an ordinance related to an amendment to the zoning map concerning two properties on Hustonville Street that will be rezoned from single-family to multi-use.
The Council went into executive session for about 15 minutes to discuss property with no action taken.
Mayor Sam Haddad gave a brief update.
Councilman Nick Turner raised an issue concerning some non-functioning fire hydrants. There are approximately 8 to 11 nonfunctional hydrants in the city that need to be replaced. Chuck Dorman stated the hydrants are not repairable and must be replaced. Total cost is estimated at between $4 and $5,000 per hydrant. The city currently has three new hydrants in stock.
