Mosheim May Move Elections To November

STAFF WRITER

The Mosheim Board of Mayor and Aldermen gave approval Thursday evening, on first reading, to a proposed ordinance to change its municipal elections from June to November.

The change would align Town of Mosheim elections to coincide with November general elections.

This move is expected to save the town about $15,000 per election, Mayor Tommy Gregg told the board members.

In order to transition to the new election date, the proposed ordinance states that the terms of office of the two aldermen and the mayor elected in June 2011 would be extended about 17 months until November 2016.

Billy Myers was elected as mayor in 2011, but resigned in July 2013 due to health problems. Gregg, who was then vice mayor, succeeded Myers as mayor.

Additionally, the terms of office of the two aldermen elected in June 2013 would also be extended about 17 months until November 2018.

The vote taken by the board on the matter was on first reading. A second and final reading is necessary to approve the ordinance.

'VERY GOOD' AUDIT

In other matters during the board meeting, a presentation was made by the town's accountant, David "Mickey" Ellis, CPA, on the town's 2012-13 audit.

Ellis gave a favorable report regarding the audit, noting that the town's assets exceeded its liabilities by $12,314,984.

Additionally, Ellis noted that the town's total net assets increased $600,226 during the current year.

"The proprietary funds consisting of the Water Fund and the Sewer Fund had a $531,183 increase in net position for the year - after taking into consideration a capital grant of $486,035," the report stated.

"There's nothing negative to say about this audit report," Ellis said. "It is a very good report, and I've issued a clean opinion."

UNCOLLECTED DEBT

In other matters, the board voted to accept a bid of $625 for the sale of a town-owned 1996 Dodge truck. It was the only bid received for the vehicle, the mayor noted.

In other business, the board voted to "write-off" dated, uncollected accounts in its sewer fund.

In terms of accounting, Ellis noted that this would be "a prudent move" for the board to make.

It was also noted by town attorney Ed Kershaw that persons responsible for these debts could still be sued for the outstanding balances, even if the debt is written off the books.

Such persons would also be responsible for paying any outstanding debt if they again requested sewer service from the town.

WATER LINE PROJECT

In giving an update on the town's water line replacement project, Jesse Lowery, the town's maintenance superviser, said that the project remains on schedule for a spring completion.

Two major problem areas being addressed, he said, are Mount Carmel Road and Fellers Cove Road.

Lowery also told the board that about 800 new water meters have also been ordered and that bidding is now underway for their installation.
