We hope you will join us Monday, March 6 for the Clayton Town Council meeting beginning 6:30 p.m. at The Clayton Center, 111 East Second Street in Downtown Clayton.

Hocutt-Ellington Memorial Library Teen Advisory Board
Library staff will introduce the Council to members of the Teen Advisory Board, explain the group's mission and share video of a recent community service project.
Formed in 2016, the Teen Advisory Board's mission is "to make a difference by encouraging fellow teens to become life-long members of the library and their community by actively developing and promoting teen events and community service projects."
On Valentine's Day, the group delivered handwritten cards to patients at the Brian Center in Clayton. This heartwarming act of kindness was caught on video, which will be shared Monday night with the Council and on social media.
The teens also delivered Christmas cards to the Brian Center in December, and they worked last summer to help elementary schoolers improve their reading and writing.
On Saturday, April 29, the group will host a Teen Rock The Block in front of Hocutt-Ellington Memorial Library on South Church Street. There will be cornhole, face painting, door prizes, a photo booth, art contests, eBook demos, and the Clayton Police Department will be grilling hotdogs!
Planned Improvements to State-Maintained Roads
Planning Director Dave DeYoung will give the Council a brief update on the N.C. Department of Transportation short-, medium- and long-term plans to improve state-maintained roads to and through Clayton.
Topics will include:
Rollingwood Gravity Sewer Outfall? Project Bid Award
The Council will consider staff's recommendation to award the contract for the Rollingwood Gravity Sewer Outfall project to Sanford Contractors Inc. of Lemon Springs, N.C. Three companies submitted bids, and Sanford Contractors came in with the lowest bid at $788,488. That beat the engineer's estimate by 9 percent.
The actual construction cost will be $831,175, according to Sanderson Engineering Inc., which made an error when asking for bids. The error understated the amount of silt fence barrier and outlets the project would require. The corrected construction cost beats the corrected engineering estimate by 8 percent.
This new sewer line will allow the Town to abandon two lift stations in the Rollingwood area and redirect sewage to Raleigh’s wastewater treatment plant through a recently-constructed sewer force main.
Another sewer project currently under development will eventually extend off this work – allowing for the abandonment of a third lift station – and allowing flow generated in the Central Avene/US Post Office area of Clayton to be redirected to Raleigh as well. That redirection will create capacity at Clayton’s wastewater treatment plant to handle sewage from the East Clayton Industrial Area, which includes Novo Nordisk and Grifols.
