Jeffersonville City Council to consider credit card ordinance

$160K to be requested for new RiverStage equipment

JEFFERSONVILLE — An ordinance designating how many credit cards each Jeffersonville department can have is on tap for an update next week.

The ordinance is to be considered by the Jeffersonville City Council, which has meetings at 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. Monday at city hall, 500 Quartermaster Court. The credit card ordinance is on the agenda for the latter meeting. Both meetings are open to the public.

The ordinance limiting credit cards has been on the books in Jeffersonville since 2008. It’s now in need of an update however, as the city has created a new Department of Law. In order for that new department to be issued a card, it has to be written into the ordinance.

The legislation, which got an initial vote late last month, brings the total number of credit cards to 25.

If approved in its current form, the Jeffersonville Police Department would have the most cards, with four. City parks would have three cards while the fire department, law department and city council would have two cards. All the other departments would have one each.


• Corporation counsel Tom Lowe is to address the council regarding an additional appropriation for lighting and sound equipment for RiverStage. City attorney Les Merkley said the request is to be for $160,000 in new equipment. The city is expecting to be reimbursed for that expenditure by the Clark-Floyd Counties Tourism and Convention Bureau.

Mayor Mike Moore discussed those upgrades earlier this year after shelving plans by his predecessor to replace the stage. The entertainment barge — docked on the Ohio River near the intersection of Riverside Drive and Spring Street during the warm months of the year — serves as a venue for concerts, films and other events.

• An ordinance establishing a tree board for the city is up for consideration.

• Discussions of the J.B. Ogle Animal Shelter and the Southern Indiana Housing Initiative are also on the agenda.
