Meeting: Holland Town Council

The Holland Town Council met Wednesday and:

• Pushed for residents of Holland and Cass Township to fill out their census information. President Tom Thacker said the simple questionnaire takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete and will affect funding for projects during the next 10 years. Anyone needing help is welcome to call him at 812-536-3231.

• Announced spring cleanup days have tentatively been scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, May 16 and 17. “As we get closer ... we may back off” and have to postpone the event, Thacker said, adding that he knows residents are looking forward to the cleanup. More details will be released as the date gets closer but residents traditionally must have a paid Holland sewer bill to leave items at the wastewater lagoon site a half-mile west of Holland on County Road 900S.

• Passed an updated salary ordinance for town employees allowing for higher hourly wages within work classifications.
