Mrs. Stoll requested signatures from the Council for a recommitment letter for each of the three INDOT projects which are currently underway (Sycamore St. Reconstruction DES 1297551; Safe Roads to School, DES 1298177; Sign Modernization, DES 1172160). The letter informs INDOT that the city intends to continue to fund these projects.
Mr. Shepherd asked that the council consider what their opinion is about establishing a policy on the take-home canine police vehicle. This topic will be up for discussion at the next regular council meeting in August.
Mrs. Maus shared a letter she received from citizen, Mr. Harold Long, expressing his opinions about the City’s decision to discontinue supporting the Potawatomi Festival. The letter asked for a response from the council on his disapproval of this decision made by the city. The council discussed the issue and agreed that Mrs. Maus, although not legally obligated, should respond to Mr. Long expressing that the council respects his opinion but that the council stands by their decision.
Mr. Craft has been contacted by Steve Smyth informing him that he no longer wishes to serve on the police merit board. The council should soon be thinking of another individual to appoint to the board.
With no further business to discuss, Mr. Askren made a motion to adjourn.
