Meeting: Birdseye Town CouncilOctober 7, 2019
The Birdseye Town Council met Thursday and:
• Scheduled Halloween trick-or-treat hours for 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31.
• Tabled suggested updates of the town’s park, dogs-at-large and weed ordinances after reviewing several points with Town Attorney Art Nordhoff.
• Approved a $95,449 proposed 2020 budget that represents a $149 increase over last year’s proposal. Once the county establishes Birdseye’s new assessed valuation, the state will establish the final, corresponding tax rate.
• Heard that Hughes Paving Co., French Lick, is likely to tackle $13,000 in street repairs and resurfacing work in the coming days. 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.
• Heard that an untended vehicle driven by someone working on the 2020 Census recently rolled away from a gas station at state roads 64 and 145 and stopped after striking and damaging a park handrail.
• Passed a resolution rescinding a blight designation that had been placed on an old school lot seven years ago. The reclaimed green space south of West Third Street, across from Jake’s Auto Parts & Service, is now the proposed location for a new fire station.
• Announced that the Indiana Volunteer Firefighters Association’s 2019 parade will be held at 1 p.m. CT Sunday, Oct. 13, at St. Meinrad.
