Castalia studies road maintenance plan
At January’s monthly business meeting held on Tuesday, January 7th, Castalia Commissioners discussed ways to maintain the streets that it has taken them so long to repair. Mayor Ellene Leonard suggested that the town hire someone part time to maintain not only the streets, but also the buildings of the town.

The goal of the position would be to “keep the streets maintained and to prevent us returning to our current situation,” Leonard said. The duties of the position should at least include keeping the ditches clean and free from weeds, debris, and leaves, she explained.

Commissioners Russ Sigmund and James Alston were in agreement that the duties needed to be performed regularly, but wanted to further consider the exact wording of the job description, the number of hours that the town could afford for the job, and the rate of pay. Commissioners Sylvia Mann and Melissa Joyner suggested that the issue be tabled and discussed in more detail at the town retreat scheduled to be held on February 23 at a restaurant in the Rocky Mount area.

A local resident, Elizabeth Lancaster, was at the meeting to thank commissioners for the road work that has been done in recent months. “Congratulations for the work you did on Church Street,” Lancaster said. “It sure looks good.” Repair work is now completed on Church and Estelle Streets.

In other business, commissioners swore in the newly re-elected commissioners for the new term. Commissioner James Alston was selected to continue as Mayor Pro-Tem in the case of the absence of the mayor. Mayor Leonard will remain the finance officer for the town.

Castalia is also planning another fund-raiser for Friday, January 25th. Quarts of Brunswick stew will be sold at the Town Hall and the Fire Station for $6 a piece. Money raised will go to the Fourth of July Celebration fund. For more information or to place orders in advance, call Ken Rice at 459-2745 or the Town Hall at 459-3668.
