The Holly Springs City Council approved the submission of the Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant application for 2021, which outlines roads that will receive improvements within the city.

City Manager Rob Logan said that the roads include:

♦ Holly Springs Parkway from Home Depot Drive to Toonigh Road;

♦ Bradshaw Lane from city limits to Spring Creek Court;,

♦ Childers Academic Circle from Holly Springs Parkway to end;

♦ Barrett Road from Holly Springs Parkway to end;,

- Park Lane from Hickory Road to end;,

- Apache Drive from Park Lane to end;, and,

- Joseph Street from Park Lane to end.

The estimated cost of the project is $608,886. The work that will be done on these roads includes patching, resurfacing, and striping. Logan said the city would begin accepting bids for the project in spring 2021.

Council then approved an agreement among Gunnin Land Surveying, Holly Springs, and the Holly Springs Downtown Development Authority for land surveying services for a boundary survey at 251 Walnut St. Logan said that the lender requested for a survey to be done to show the physical location of the stormwater easement.

At their last council meeting, members approved a Storm Easement Agreement for property located at this same address among Weaver Grading & Hauling, Holly Springs, and the Downtown Development Authority for the purpose of constructing outfall at the stormwater detention facility that is being built.

A Merchant Services Agreement among Paymentech, LLC for itself and on behalf of JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., Link2Gov, Corp. was also approved. This relates to the new software that Holly Springs is implementing, Edmunds GovTech, which is for online payments.

The council then voted to accept a right-of-way donation for the Holly Springs Parkway Phase One Widening Project. Logan said that DD HSP, LLC, is donating this land, which consists of 0.06 acres and is located at lot 562, to the city.

Council also approved a resolution to open three General Fund Budget Stabilization Certificates of Deposit at South State Bank in the amount of just over $1 million.

Community Development Director Nancy Moon then presented to council a resolution to release the Cagle Heights Phases one and two, and Edgewater Phase one Performance Bonds, which are bonds that are issued by an insurance company or bank to guarantee completion of a project by a contractor. Moon said that, because the street and sidewalk maintenance phases were completed, the performance bonds are no longer needed.
