Council members furnish paving ‘wish lists’

News Staff Writer

All five Atmore City Council members turned in their respective “wish lists” of streets in their districts they would like to see paved when the city begins its next major street resurfacing project.
Little discussion was conducted during a Monday, March 22, workshop that preceded the regular council meeting, since only Mayor Jim Staff and two council members were in attendance.
Staff said the paving requests would be passed on to Jeremy McMath of Civil Southwest, who serves as the city’s engineer.
McMath is to compile estimated costs on each requested or suggested street project, then bring the information back to the council for final resolution.
City officials provided a list showing the following requests:
District 1 (Webb Nall)
Horner Street
South 14th Avenue
District 2 (Jerome Webster)
Harris Street
Ashley Street
District 3 (Eunice Johnson)
Peachtree Street
A-C avenues
Brooks Lane
Brown Street
Harris Street
District 4 (Shawn Lassiter)
McRae Street
Alexandria Drive
West Pine Street
District 5 (Chris Harrison)
Perch Street
Bream Street
Beck Street, between Craig and Pine streets
No anticipated date was given for the final selection of streets that will get new surfaces or when the paving project would start.
