KILLIAN – The town council at tonight’s meeting will focus on ways to reduce the number of traffic accidents at the “triangle” intersection near the town hall.

Discussion at the 6:30 p.m. meeting will include plans to seek help from the state Department of Transportation and Development on options to reduce the number of accidents, including the reshaping of the intersection that connects state highways 444 and 22, Mayor Gillis Windham said.

The council will also seek bids to put a liquid asphalt coating on the helipad in from of the town hall. The coating would stop chunks of asphalt from hitting the town hall building when helicopters land or take off from the site.

The town will also discuss litter pickup in ditches around the community.

The franchise fee dispute with Entergy remains in discussion with both entities and will go on the agenda of the May meeting, Windham said.

The town hiked the fee from 3 percent to 5 percent in January on service providers, including electricity, gas, telephone, internet/cable, water and sewer.
