Meeting: Birdseye Town CouncilSeptember 6, 2019
The Birdseye Town Council met Thursday and:
• Hammered out, after much discussion, a $95,449 proposed 2020 budget that represents just a $149 total increase over last year’s proposal. It is likely destined to be further pared.
• Heard from Indiana 15 Regional Planning Commission Senior Project Administrator Nathan Held that Birdseye’s grant application seeking money for a new fire station was not funded. Just three projects were funded in the most recent grant round, with a large award going to a community whose fire station burned. Birdseye will resubmit its application but will need a good turnout at a public hearing set for 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 23, at the current fire station at 9 W. First St.
• Heard from Council President Bret Eckert that Hughes Paving Co., French Lick, is likely to tackle $13,000 in street repairs and resurfacing work next week. Locations where potholes and other pavement failures will be repaired include points on Oak, King, Eighth and Ash streets. The Town Hall lot at 103 W. State Road 64 will also be repaired and sealed for the first time in seven years.
• Received an activity report from Birdseye Town Marshal Benton Stroud, who said there were two arrests in August and one recovered all-terrain vehicle.
• Planned to discuss an update to the town’s park board ordinance next month with Town Attorney Art Nordhoff. The October meeting is set for 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 3, at Town Hall, 103 W. State Road 64.
