The Pleasant View Board of Mayor and Aldermen discussed issues with sponsor signs at Balthrop Park at its September meeting.
Alderman Bill Anderson pointed out that some signs are in disrepair, along with concerns about how long signs should be up if several groups wish to put up signs, adding that the Pleasant View Athletic Association should have the right to address these issues.
City Attorney Martha Brooke Perry said that a resolution would be needed to be drafted or a yearly resolution could be applied to amend any existing arrangement with groups using the park.
Rigsby & Son was awarded the job of clearing trees from power lines and lights at Balthrop Park with a quote of $1,600.
Also, Anderson said that a dog part is not feasible for the town because there is not enough space to accommodate it.
“We have enough of a challenge trying to find room enough for our kids to play sports,” he said.
The board approved the purchase of a grapple bucket for the town’s New Holland tractor from Larry Stoves and Equipment for $2,200 and the purchase of a conversion kit for the grapple bucket for $1,034 from Dickson County Equipment.
The board approved a $3,300 payment to the Tennessee Law Enforcement Training Academy for sending an officer to the Basic Law Enforcement School.
Mayor Perry Keenan presented the September Cruise’n N groove’n Major’s Choice Award to Dan and Gail Price of Clarksville for their 1982 Avanti manufactured by Studebaker.
“I bought it from an estate sale in California, with 4,000 miles on it,” Dan said. “There were 180 made that year. It was a handmade special order in 1982 for $29,000. Mine is number 40. There are only 25 left.”
He said that Pleasant View alderman Kyle Pritchett worked on the car to get it going.
“It was so much fun,” Gail said of the event. “We’ve been coming for years. It’s a nice town for people to get together.”
Keenan said that the couple has been coming to the event since it was held on Main Street before moving to The Village.
The Pleasant View cruise’n N groove’n takes place on the third Saturday of the month, with Oct. 19 being the final showing of the year.
The next monthly meeting of the Pleasant View Board of Mayor and Aldermen will take place on Oct. 8 at 7 p.m.
