The March regular meeting of the Goodrich City Council discussed the annual egg hunt, utility lines for a resident, and a new member to the council.

The Goodrich Easter Egg Hunt will take place Saturday, March 30, beginning at 2 p.m. The Goodrich Honor Society will be present the day before to help stuff more than 5,000 eggs with candy and prizes. Hot dogs, chips and drinks will be served for those in attendance of the hunt.

A resident with land near Highway 59, said he lived on the property a few decades ago, paying for water and sewer. Since that time, there has been no sewer hookup, with the structure destroyed during Hurricane Ike. After checking with city employees, he found that getting sewer to the property would not be an issue. The owner spent money to clear the property and hauled in a structure. In November, city employees could not find a water line and he was told a new line would arrive in February.

The resident said he spent $50,000 on the property in preparations to make the site livable. He was then told council decided not to run lines to the property last month, claiming it was outside city limits.

Running a new line to the resident would be around 700 feet, something the owner said he would gladly share an expenses. A search will continue for the old lines, while the two sides work toward an agreement.

New resident, Ty Grubbs, has inquired about getting added to the city council as an alderman. However, he was yet to live within the city limits for six months until now. Council’s plans are to add Grubbs at April’s regular meeting.
