Burgess Barnes opened discussion on the Grants to be awarded to businesses in town through the ARPA funds the town received. He would like to form a committee of three residents that are not affiliated with any business in town to review the submissions and make the determinations.
The Grant process will open on March 15th and determinations will be made on April 15th.
Commissioner Crum will put the application on the website. Burgess Barnes will email the form to Council members.
Commissioner Case reported the next Planning and Zoning meeting will be held on Monday, May 2 nd. He also reported Mr. Weinrich will not be pursuing his land survey until summer. He would also like to see more Deputy presence in town for speeders.
Burgess Barnes reported on a rumor that JR’s Sports Bar was being torn down. He indicated that it was simply closed.
Commissioner Eckenrode had nothing to report.
Commissioner Cutshall reported he is still waiting for quotes on signs.
Commissioner Crum reported on a meeting she had at the park with a representative from
Playground Specialist and town employees. She gave a recap of things that need to be taken care of at the park playgrounds. A motion to remove one small playground that had two old pieces of equipment in it passed 4 – 0. Commissioner Crum reported that we needed nine more inches of
mulch in the playground and that the workout stations were to be six inches deep.
Burgess Barnes suggested obtaining quotes on the mulch and installation of the mulch. Commissioner Crum also reported that it was suggested we get a playground inspection sheet and perform two inspections per year and keep the records. Other items in the park that need attention is the
sticks that need picked up before mowing season and the Disc Golf group. The disc golf group has installed signs and added equipment without Council’s approval. She feels they need to come before the Council before any changes are made in the park.
Burgess Barnes reported the contractor should have the stage and bridge done by the middle of May.
Commissioner Crum reported the steps on the stage are bowed.
Resident Judy Katz, Copper Oaks Drive, reported the maintenance men did an outstanding job with plowing snow in front of her house. She also mentioned the streets have not been cleaned and the front of her house is where all the leaves blow to. She does not feel cleaning the street or
gutter should be her responsibility. She asked if the maintenance men could come into her yard and pick up sticks and things. Burgess Barnes informed her they cannot for it is a liability.
There being no further business, a motion to adjourn the meeting passed 4 – 0.
