Obion gas rate discussed

Obion Mayor Glen Parnell has suggested the Obion City Council consider changes to the city’s industrial/commercial gas rate.
He brought up his proposal at Monday night’s Obion council meeting, but it was decided to have the issue addressed by the council’s budget committee when it drafts a new 2012-13 budget.
Also during Monday night’s meeting, the council addressed an ongoing problem with the sewer lines from the Newbern Housing Authority’s Spring Valley Subdivision on the north side of town. The issue involves grease in the sewer lines that are clogging up the pipes.
The council agreed to contract with Drainworks of Newbern to clean out the lift station that serves Spring Valley and to take steps to address the problem of grease being flushed into the sewer system.
There was a brief discussion of the ogoing controversy over rural fire protection, but the council took no action Monday night. The council’s next regularly scheduled meeting is set for 7 p.m. June 18. The county commission is scheduled to meet earlier that day.
