Meeting: Ferdinand Town Council

The Ferdinand Town Council met Tuesday and:

• Heard that the Old Town Lake kayak launch and fishing pier are complete and almost ready for the public.

• Discussed the potential installation of a four-way stop at Ninth and Virginia streets. Town Council President Ken Sicard said he has been discussing the idea with businesses and will follow up at the July council meeting.

• Accepted the low bid from J.H. Rudolph & Co. Inc. of $214,123.18 with an additional price of $395 per unit of soil that needs to be removed for the Community Crossings Matching Grant projects. This will go toward repaving streets across the town later this year.

• Discussed how neighbors can be notified by the press or by door hangers if their streets will be affected by CCMG paving.

• Passed a resolution allowing town board and council members to attend meetings virtually. The public must also be able to view the meetings virtually. The resolution states that at least 50% of members must be present in person at the meeting, and every member attending virtually must be able to hear and observe every board member participating.

• Approved a request from a title company to release a cleanup lien that has been paid but was never released.
