Meeting: Birdseye CouncilMay 3, 2013
The Birdseye Town Council met Thursday and:
”¢ Reviewed plans in place for a townwide yard sale taking place today and Saturday.
”¢ Paid the final bills for inspections, demolition and debris removal at the abandoned old school and gymnasium that once stood at West Third Street. A stand of grass and rye has been planted on top of the former school site. The town paid for the work this spring with a disaster recovery grant obtained from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs. Council members decided to keep a $1,000 retainer until contractor Knies Construction of Jasper has a chance to do some final landscaping.
”¢ Learned that President Jerry Allstott and Utility Superintendent Glenn Bayer have assumed responsibility for mowing around the town’s stone entrance markers. Allstott will mow around the marker on State Road 64 at the west edge of town. Bayer will used the town’s tractor and mowing implement to cover a site along State Road 145 south of town. The area around the marker on the east side of town is mowed by residents Joe and Donna Hoffman because the monument is near their residence.
”¢ Announced that applications for renting the former Morris Abel home east of the town park are available at Town Hall and at Birdseye General Store. The town purchased the house and land with it six years ago for a park expansion. Rent for the residence is set at $400 a month.
”¢ Heard from park board members that work to fill in a ditch on the north side of the park will take place next week and an engineer has been commissioned to draw up a design for a half-mile walking trail at the park. Park board members plan to seek a grant to construct the trail.
