The Hope City Board announced Tuesday afternoon at their biweekly meeting that Kenneth Harvel has been rehired as the new Street Superintendent of Hope.
Mayor Don Still is very excited about having Harvel back on board as the street superintendent.
“I’m glad to have Kenneth back,” he said. “He’s been very involved in the building and the paving and the ditching and you name it, he’s done it.”
City manager Catherine Cook is also very happy about having Harvel back and says she knows he will be reliable.
“I’m personally glad to have him back,” she said. “Kenneth knows that in the mist of disaster, I always seem to find his number and he shows up.”
The board also approved of a draft policy for installing speed bumps in the city. Each installation is estimated to cost anywhere between $800 and $1,000. The Board will put up signs informing the different areas that may be affected by the speed bumps that there will be a public hearing to hear the public’s opinion before installing them at the next meeting, but the Board will make the final decision.
Director Trevor Coffee presented the motion to adopt and Director Mark Ross seconded that motion with the rest of the board also being in favor of it.
