One of the many items on Tuesday night's Dublin council meeting agenda was the appointment of Lewis Jensen of Dallas to inspect the Grist Mill for asbestos. This is the final inspection of the mill before renovation is continued.

There were several public hearings. For the Wind Turbine grant match, the council approved a 50-percent of match funds. Since the amount has been approved, application can be made for a grant.

Katherine Prater was appointed to the Board of Directors for the Appraisal Board and Tom Gordon was nominated to the Appraisal Review Board.

In other business, Stacy Pigott requested the council's approval for a historical marker in front of the Rodeo Museum, which will be considered.

The repainting of the water tower was approved if EDC assists with the costs.

After recommendations from the Planning and Zoning Commission to rezone properties located at 364 W. Liveoak and 513 Hawk from Single Family to B-1 neighborhood businesses, the council approved.

The council considered the request to waive fees at the new intermediate school. It approved the fee waiver, but indicated that all inspections must be paid for by the district.

Sandy Reed was reappointed to the Economic Development Board.

The council approved the annexation and directed that paperwork be started for the Robert and Edith Hamilton and Norman and Marian Tooman properties.

Finally, a resolution was adopted creating an agreement between the City of Dublin and Gliddon and Sons to construct the new shed for the Public Works Department.
