Red Bank Commissioners Give Final Approval To Budget

Tuesday, June 18, 2019 - by Gail Perry

Red Bank’s $6,420,800 budget for fiscal year 2019-2020 was accepted unanimously after the second and final reading at the commission meeting Tuesday evening. There will be no change in the property tax rate, it remains at $1.39 per every $100 of assessed value of a property. Paving projects that have been carried over from last year are included in the new budget as are updates that will be made to city-owned facilities so they will conform to the American’s with Disabilities Act.

 

An agreement with Arcadis, U.S. in the amount of $54,950  was authorized for engineering services related to building sidewalks along Dayton Boulevard from Newberry Street to Greenleaf Street, and another section of sidewalks up Ashland Terrace. The city of Red Bank will be responsible for just 20 percent of the cost, with 80 percent coming from a state transportation grant.

 

City Manager Tim Thornbury reported that the bridge project on Brentwood Drive is nearing completion. The box culverts have been replaced and paving is scheduled for later this week, depending on the weather.

 

The city of Red Bank has used Southeast Tennessee Development District, a government agency, for several years to provide local planning advisory services. On Tuesday night the commissioners voted to renew the agreement for the coming year.

 

A public hearing was held regarding a request from property owners at 105 Brentwood Drive to change zoning of their property from R-1 Single family residential district, to R-3 which permits multi family units. The owners wanted the change in order to run a short-term rental business at the house. Short term rentals are only allowed in R-3 or Commercial districts in Red Bank. There were no citizens present to speak for or against the rezoning, and the motion to rezone the property failed due to the lack of a second.

 

A report on the city’s debt obligation in the amount of $1.9 million in general obligation capital outlay notes was presented at the commission meeting, as required by state law. The motion to acknowledge that it was received, approved and accepted, passed unanimously.

 

Vice Mayor Terry Pope announced that on Saturday, June 21, a catfish dinner at the Red Bank Community Diner will be held. All proceeds will go the new Red Bank Food Pantry that churches in the city are in the process of creating.

 

A resolution passed to cancel the regularly scheduled agenda work session and the commission meeting for July 2 due to conflicts with time and there being no business to conduct.
