Emily discusses cartway process

The Emily City Council in July approved a location for a cartway to develop an access to a landlocked piece of property.

The Prinzing Cartway would give a landowner access to his property, though it is surrounded by private property on all sides. The Emily City Council is in the process of meeting to discuss the standards for the cartway, review the location and assess damages before any action is taken. According to the July 8 city council meeting minutes, the council approved a location for the cartway after finding that the property meets certain requirements. Further meetings must be held to approve the cartway.

The council also acknowledged a need for more volunteer firefighters and agreed to advertise for two weeks for firefighters.

In other business, the council:

• Approved the Berg Easement Deed for 2014 road improvements.

• Agreed to have the mayor contact a tree service for tree removal and trimming.
