The Corinth Board of Mayor and Aldermen entertained numerous public hearings on property cleanup and made several board and commission appointments this week.

The board voted to reappoint Lila Wade to a joint city-county seat on the park commission. County supervisors approved Wade’s reappointment in June.

For The Alliance Board of Directors, the board voted to reappoint Dave Huwe, who is the city’s director of community development and planning. The mayoral appointment to The Alliance board will again be Sally Davis Dillingham.

The board acted on 22 cleanup properties:

• CMH Services, Inc., Highway 72 — Continued to Sept. 17

• 1805 Maple Road, A.W. Manness — Adjudicated to be cleaned

• 1217 Proper Street, Don Arnold Properties, LLC — Continued to Sept. 17

• 1405 East 5th Street, Henry Pollard — Adjudicated to be cleaned

• 1202 Tate Street, Stone and Bryant — Adjudicated to be cleaned

The board also approved an off-premises beer license for Papas Food Mart, 2102 Highway 72; approved an agreement to accept the Mississippi Transportation Commission’s contribution of $2,054 toward design work on airport taxiway rehabilitation; and approved additional work on the Webster Street project.

Several trees were set to be removed on Webster, and the board accepted 3D Construction’s quote for 1,300 feet of curb and gutter between Bunch and Linden.

The trees are being removed for safety because some of the roots had to be cut. The city is looking into replacing them with maples.
