Main Street Coordinator, will present an overview of the CLG or Certified
Local Government Process as outlined at the CLG Conference recently held in
Oklahoma City. For informational purposes only - no action is being requested.
Renie Doherty (right) addressed the city commission
about the benefits of establishing a Certified Local Government (with historic
preservation as it's primary objective) to facilitate establishing Collinsville's
downtown as an Historic District on the National Register. The commission
directed City Manager Jim Whitlock to investigate the status of a similar
effort a few years back with the State's Historic Preservation Office before
deciding on a new effort. Mayor Stan Sallee, City Clerk Karen
Randell-Clark, Vice Mayor Gail Rogers, Commissioner Pam Porter listen (above)
at the main table with Bob Wolfram and Jim Whitlock in the fore ground.
2. Discussion and possible
approval of cemetery title transfer/assignment request from Virginia Flamming
pertaining to the property located in Ridgelawn East Cemetery Lot 20, Block
5, Gravesite 5, City of Collinsville. The commission
approved a quick claim release on a 1/2 plot belonging to Just family heirs.
City Attorney Underwood indicated the technically appropriate action of a
probate process (costing at least $1000) was not likely for a plot which was
purchased for about $67 in the 1940s. Affidavits signed by Betty Smith &
Dorthy Duncan relinquished any claim to their father Ed Just's plot.
3. Consideration and possible acceptance of a Deed of Dedication of a 17.5
foot easement within Lot 5, Block 20, Original town addition, from Smalygo

V. UNFINISHED BUSINESS
1. City Manager Report.
Bob Wolfram (see photo above) reported 8.89 tons of
trash were collected during the 3 collection days following Christmas. He
also indicated Subway will soon start the process for their new building behind
the existing Subway at 7th and Main.
Wolfram also mentioned the work on City Hall had freed up brick for rebuilding
the front wall that fell in March 2002. Bricks and other construction material
will likely cause 12th Street (beside City Hall between Main and the alley)
to be closed during some of the construction phase as the Fire/EMS construction
(by another contractor) was still in progress also.
