"The road is flatter on the north bound lane, and it doesn't hold the car in the curve," Carlstedt said.
The letter asked the highway department to include the necessary repairs on Ky. 29 in the maintenance schedule.
"We're giving the highway department hard data to help them make a decision," Carlstedt said. "Horne Engineering has taken a lot of administrative burdens off this project by doing the survey. All the state has to do is come up with the money for the construction."
Mayor Harold Rainwater said that he appreciated the effort by Horne Engineering to get the survey of the road done.
"I don't know of anything more important than preventing people from running off the road," he said.
Carlstedt said that if the Kentucky Department of Highways approves the request, the repairs could be done this year.
The council approved the application for a $99,000 grant which would be used for landscaping of the area between the downtown and the Jessamine Christian Health Care office.
"It's called Downtown Green, and it's a city owned green space just behind Main Street," said Margaret Morgan, Wilmore director of community development.
She said that the grant money would pay for trees, shrubs, flower beds, decorative fountains and also for sidewalks along Walters Lane, which will provide residents of Wilmore access to the new park.
The city will need to match 20 percent of the grant, but this money won't be coming from the budget. Premier Villages promised the city $10,000 for sidewalk improvements, and Morgan suggested the city use the money to match the grant. The remaining $10,000 will be in-kind contributions from the city and donated cash.
The council approved another grant application, a $13,000 grant to replace some Wilmore firefighters' gear. The city would need to match 5 percent of it.
"You'll pay only $600 or $700, and we'll get 10 new sets of jackets and pants," said Wilmore Fire Chief Jeff Anderson.
He said that old gear is either stored at the department in case a particular size is needed in the future, or being donated to rural fire departments, mainly in Eastern Kentucky.
The council decided to delay its vote on Premier Village's request to be exempt from the city's impact fee ordinance because Wilmore City Attorney Bobby Gullette was not present at the meeting. The council discussed the matter in closed session twice. The item was discussed in private because of possible litigation.
Another tabled items were the new streetlight specification ordinance and the approval of the proposal from Johnson Controls for an energy efficiency audit and analysis for the city facilities.
Both matters will be brought before the council at a later date.
