Grayson moves forward on package store

GRAYSON -- The new beer, wine and alcohol package store project got a boost Monday night, as the City Council appointed a private engineer, architect and building inspector.

"We're ready to get going on this building project," said Jim Hinkle at the regular Grayson council meeting.

Dennis Norton of Lawrenceville was named the architect, while Benjamin Tiller of Lawrenceville was selected as the building inspector. Norton will be paid $120 per hour, while Tiller will receive the full price of the building permit fee.

"No out-of-pocket money will have to come from the city," City Planner Steve Sappington said.

Development, Planning and Engineering, Inc. of Buford was tapped as the special engineer.

In other business, the Council:

-- Agreed to tear down the W.H. Britt Building, which the city purchased in late fall, 2011. Low bid for the demolition was given to Walters Grading for $10,900.

-- Tabled sign ordinance revisions until the next council meeting pending completion of a survey that will break down stores into categories to see what size signs will best fit them.

-- Recognized several Miss Grayson representatives, who told about their various community service projects.

-- Announced that Grayson Day will be April 28.

$120 per hour. That's almost as much as my plumber makes. Almost.
