WATER TOWER UPDATE

Please see below schedule for the Hemby Road Water Tower.  This information was received by Union County Public Works.  Currently, the Contractor appears to be on schedule with the site work portion of the Contract.  Union County anticipates in the next three (3) to four (4) weeks that the subcontractor that will be installing the auger cast piles to support the tank will be mobilizing on site to commence with their efforts.  Currently, the site work subcontractor has completed initial grading, construction of the access road, and installation of sediment and erosion control measures.  The contractor has sown temporary seeding and placed straw to stabilize the site according to NCDENR requirements.  At the beginning of December 2014 it is anticipated that the contractor will be taking delivery of piping and start installation of the on- and off-site waterlines that will feed the tank and tie-in existing systems on Hemby Road.

Community Emergency Response Teams

The Town Council has had preliminary discussions regarding a CERT program for the Town of Weddington. The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area. The program is designed to train citizens in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.

If you are a citizen of Weddington and would be interested in joining a CERT or would like to help in forming a CERT program in Weddington, please call the Town Hall at 704-846-2709 or send an email with your contact information to amy@townofweddington.com.

If there is enough interest in the community to start a CERT, we will notify all the interested citizens of the first meeting. This meeting will be an open forum, available to all citizens interested in learning more about the CERT initiatives for Weddington.

If you would like more information on the CERT program, please go to this government web site that is dedicated to CERT: http://www.citizencorps.gov/cert/index.shtm
