Meeting: Holland Town CouncilSeptember 6, 2018
The Holland Town Council met Wednesday and:
• Reminded the public that the Holland Community Festival is next weekend. The theme for the Sept. 14-16 fest is Homegrown Holland. Council President Tom Thacker says there will be a beer garden, bands, carnival rides, pageants and games for young and old.
• Announced that the Indiana Historical Society has selected the Holland Events Committee and the Town of Holland to receive its Outstanding Collaborative Project Award for Holland Commons. The award recognizes a history-based event or project with special consideration for projects that share county or regional history. Holland will receive the award Nov. 5 in Indianapolis.
• Discussed off-road vehicles in town, with Town Attorney Scott Blazey supplying information that will be reviewed and discussed at the October meeting.
• Planned to consider adopting the town’s 2019 budget at next month’s meeting, which is slated for 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10, at Town Hall, 505 W. Main St.
• Approved a $3,470 contract with Alt & Witzig Engineering Inc., Evansville, for boring services at Washington and Church streets in Stendal as part of a grant-funded water tower project and a $186,500 engineering contract with Midwestern Engineers of Loogootee, which will oversee the $1.13 million project. Holland learned last month it is getting a $600,000 grant to use toward rehabilitating the Holland water tower and replacing a small Stendal tower with a 50,000-gallon replacement. The engineering contract includes not-to-exceed costs of preliminary engineering ($7,500), final design ($62,000), bidding services ($4,000), general observation/construction engineering ($16,000), resident project representative ($92,000) and surveying ($5,000).
