New Chelsea transport vehicle in service

CHELSEA – Chelsea’s new transport vehicle is now in service.

The vehicle actually performed its first transport on Aug. 21, but Chelsea Fire Chief Wayne Shirley had his first opportunity to update the City Council on the matter at the Council’s meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 3.

“It’s already in service and helping our community,” Shirley said.

Shirley also provided the Council with an update on the city’s planned third fire station, which should be completed in mid- to late-November.

The station will be located off Shelby County 51, adjacent to the Chelsea Park development.

Chelsea Fire & Rescue had received a $20,000 grant for extrication equipment, and the equipment should be ready to display for the Council at its next meeting, on Sept. 17, Shirley said.

In other business, the Council:

  • Was recognized by a representative of Tree City USA for 20 years of participation in the program. “The fact that Chelsea is so committed to the Tree City program and making trees a part of your community, I think is extremely laudable,” said Katie Wiswall, who presented the Council and Mayor Tony Picklesimer with a street sign, flag and plaque.
  • Approved three annexation ordinances: 3 acres at 230 Stillmeadow Circle submitted by Michael and Lisa Griffin, 8.8 acres located off Liberty Road submitted by Connor Farmer, and 0.38 acres located at 2199 Shelby County 36 submitted by James and Sue Ellen Thompson.
  • Approved the city obtaining a line of credit at Renasant Bank.
  • Heard from Emily Sims with the Chelsea Public Library that a homeschool hangout will be held from 1-3 p.m. on Sept. 25, and a homeschool moms’ night out will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 17.
  • Heard from Kay Darden that the Chelsea Historical Society will recognize Constitution Week on Sept. 17 with an event for children in grades kindergarten through fifth grade including a special guest and craft.
  • Heard that the Chelsea Citizen Observer Patrol will hold a training session on Sept. 21 for certifications in first aid, CPR and AED.
