Aquatic center design gets council nod

Audit of bicentennial commission tabled



The bond closing for the projects is slated for next month, and could be worth as much as $19.6 million. 



Zurschmiede tabled his resolution calling for an audit of the New Albany Bicentennial Commission, as he said more information has been presented to him on the matter. 

Though he didn’t expound on the information, Zurschmiede said he does plan on bringing the resolution up for a vote during the council’s next meeting in June. 

Earlier this month, former bicentennial treasurer Vic Megenity presented the council with a list of nonprofit violations he said occurred due to lack of documentation of expenses and revenue by one of the commission members. 

Gonder said the issue needs to be resolved quickly so that the public can be made aware of what transpired. 

He said Megenity “threw a fish out on the table and we need to deal with it.” 



On final readings, the council approved $2 million for paving this year and $46,000 for the purchase and installation of two tornado sirens. 

The council is still expected to request funding help for the sirens from Floyd County. 

The sirens will be located on the Spring Street fire station and in Bicknell Park.
