BELLS — The dilemma of Smith’s lift station was discussed further at a Bells City Council special meeting on Monday night. As with any project, the first step begins with the budget. Mayor Pro Tem Roger Goodwin said the Council spent the evening working on approving their 2015 budget and tax rate, which included how to handle the moving of the lift station. The idea of purchasing a nearby beauty salon as a new location for the lift station was suggested, and the Council decided to look into the matter, but no action has been taken at this time.
