UC council approves engineering services

The Union City Council agreed to spend $33,000 in a meeting which took only two minutes Tuesday night.
The $33,000 is for engineering services with J.R. Wauford Engineering for painting and maintenance to be performed on the Lake Road elevated water tank.
The contract was ap-proved without discussion at the meeting.
City attorney Jim Glas-gow Jr., who opened the meeting with prayer, conducted the meeting in the absence of city manager Kathy Dillon.
The council also learned that no bids have been received for Lots 1 and 2 in the Quail Ridge subdivision.
A list of bills was approved without discussion and no miscellaneous business was brought to the council’s attention.
After receiving no response when asking if anyone in the audience wished to address the council, Mayor Terry Hailey adjourned the meeting.
An elderly man then asked to speak with the council. The man, who did not offer his name, asked the council why there are no smoke-free buildings in the apartment complex where he lives. The man apparently lives in a Union City Housing Authority building and is on a breathing machine. He said the other tenants in his building smoke, which makes it difficult for him to breathe. The man said he had already written the Union City Housing Authority and got no response. He said he figured his next step would be the Union City council.
Hailey told the man the Union City Housing Authority has its own board, but that maybe the city manager could speak with them about his situation.
