Meeting: Huntingburg Common CouncilOctober 9, 2019
The Huntingburg Common Council met Tuesday and:
• Learned that the paperwork to obtain State Revolving Fund financing for improvements to the city’s water system and water plant has been accepted. Bids for the project will be opened at 1:30 p.m. Nov. 7, at City Hall; the council will consider accepting a bid at its Nov. 12 meeting, which starts at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall.
• Adopted the city’s 2020 budget, which will be sent to the state for final approval. Councilman Glen Kissling, who is a fireman, abstained from voting; state law stipulates that police officers and firefighters who are council members cannot vote on the budget.
• Heard Councilman Tim Wehr talk about letters some residents are getting from the county assessor’s office. Some properties are comprised of several parcels, which makes property tax matters complicated. In some cases a house is sitting on two different parcels, Wehr said. The assessor’s office is planning to consolidate those parcels into one parcel at no charge. The owners of affected properties have received notice of the plan, and must contact the assessor’s office if they do not want their parcels joined to make one parcel.
• Established the department of community development.
• Was reminded that the Haunted Huntingburg Blues Festival will be held from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday at Market Street Park.
• Set trick-or-treat hours for 5:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31.
