|Grantsville's town council approved a recommendation made by Mayor Curt Garretson to fill "the pit," a piece of real estate owned by the town that has been the object of contention for many years.|
The mayor said the project would require the installation of a number of drains and pipes before it can be filled with dirt.
Garretson said the filling of "the pit" would increase the value of the property by at least $50,000, and eliminate an eyesore.
The site would be ready for the fill dirt as soon as May 31st, he said.
The projects cost would be shared by each municipal department, with dirt coming from multiple sources, including a current water project, dirt from town property at the Industrial Park, and citizen donations.
The proposal passed unanimously.
"Those in attendance that spoke about the actions were pleased with the result," Garretson concluded.
The town is selling a truck on the property for a minimum bid of $700.
