Hunting, shooting licenses pulled for now

By Staff
Mitch Freeman Madison County Record
Those who had been granted permits to hunt and shoot shotguns in the Madison city limits can no longer do so, according to Madison Police Director Lee Weaver.
Four such permits have been suspended.
Madison City Attorney Anne Marie Lacy said that she had met with shooting protester Ed Collins and the decision was made to suspend all permits until the city council can determine a final resolution.
Lacy said that she would explore options, in regards to the ordinance that regulates gun shooting in the city of Madison, and report them to the city council.
In other business, redistricting maps have been located at public places, including city hall, on the city's web site and at the Madison Public Library.
So far, the city council has received little feedback.
"I have had no public comments about the redistricting plan," Lacy said.
District 1 council member Cynthia McCollum said the consultant who presented the redistricting plan to the council is scheduled to attend a public meeting with her constituents to talk about the proposed district line revisions.
In regard to the city of Madison's growth plan, the growth commission continues to meet in effort to draw up a plan that can be agreed upon.
"We have a draft position. I don't think we want to grow west of Burgreen Road," commission member Sandy Kirkindall said. "We would go north only to gain access to Highway 72."
Community Development Director Bob Atallo commented that residential growth would could stop at Burgreen Road, but that commercial growth might be allowed to extend beyond Burgreen.
He added that residential growth might be allowed beyond Burgreen as well, if the residential growth would help attract commercial business.
The next growth commission meeting is scheduled for May 22 at 6 p.m. at city hall in the council chambers. Few residents attended the May 13 meeting.
In other business, the council approved payment to:
* Smith Engineering for [Po1]and design services related to building a driveway to connect Kid's Kingdom to the main roadway inside Dublin Park, which cost $852.50.
* Smith Engineering for surveying to correct inadequate drainage in Maplewood Estates, which cost $3,877.50.
* Frederick Design Studio for services related to construction of the outdoor pool at Dublin Park, which cost $1,334.61.
* Burleson Master Pool Company for services related to construction of the outdoor pool at Dublin Park, which cost $40,423.45.
* Lee Builders for services related to construction of the outdoor pool at Dublin Park, which cost $62,413.41.
* OMI, Inc. for testing services related to construction of the outdoor pool at Dublin Park, which cost $1,029.
* Council member Ray Stubblefield reported that the city now has two vehicles that are deemed to be total losses due to accidents. The purchase of one replacement has already been approved. The council approved the purchase of a second vehicle off the state bid list.
* Authorized annexation of almost 10 acres owned by Heritage Plantation, located in Heritage Station Phase Three.
* Granted a special events license to sell beer and wine to Rock Divers, Inc. for a June 6 music festival.
