Elder and the council agreed, if it is not defined in the annexation ordinance, to determine representation until a redistricting plan is defined.
“In the interim ... we need to have somebody responsible to represent those folks,” Rhodes said.
LIFT STATION WORK
A bid for rehabilitation work on a lift station along Perry Crossing Road was unanimously accepted by the town council Monday night.
Alexander explained the work was rolled into this year because of extra expenses in dealing with the same issue at a lift station near Silver Creek High School.
The bids were opened at a public meeting Friday, with Clark Nickles Inc. coming in as the low bidder at $57,707 and EZ Construction as the next bidder at $93,370.
Councilman Terry Langford questioned why there was such a large difference in the bidding amounts and Alexander said he was unsure.
He said it may be as simple as how busy each company is and added that other bids that have come in recently have also shown large differences in bid price.
The contract with Clark Nickles was accepted and the money for the project will come from the town’s sewer tap-in fee fund.
ADDING GREEN SPACE
A contract was approved to begin turning what was formerly the Miller Meat Market in Sellersburg into a green space.
Sellersburg previously purchased land adjacent to Wilkerson Park with the intention of expanding the park.
To remove concrete still on site, fill and smooth out the lot, a contract totaling $14,500 with Dan Cristiani Excavating Co. Inc. was unanimously approved.
Several instances of vandalism to stop signs has been reported, according to town officials.
About four or five stop signs have been painted with black paint and will need to be replaced in the Creston addition, near U.S. 31. The cost of the signs is estimated at $85, with labor to replace the signs at about $100.
