 Hodgenville City Council will open bids at 10 a.m. Jan. 19 for the Hamilton Heights sewer project.

Mayor Terry Cruse said Monday that work on the area will begin “as soon as possible,” perhaps March, “depending on the weather.”

The City has been dealing with sections of the street collapsing in that area, Cruse said.

In other business:

Hodgenville Fire Chief Wally Sparks reported for the month: one vehicle fire, a carbon monoxide detector going off at the jail and two traffic control runs due to accidents.

Police Chief Steve Johnson reported that Gerald Murphy had volunteered to act as chaplain for Hodgenville City Police. Murphy will attend an eight-hour class and will be available to assist families during death investigations or accidents and work with officers. It’s a non-paid position.

Cruse said work has started on installing a natural gas emergency generator. The generator was paid for by a grant.

Cruse announced the purchase of a stainless steel salt bed for the city’s dump truck at a cost of $5,000.
