Others in attendance were Matt Comer, Mike Moran, Sharon Anderson, Rob Davis, Angie Dillard, Devon Rodgers, Mark and Dawn Christian, Rhonda Bennett, Jennifer Reed, the deputy Clerk and the City clerk.
Holmes introduced Matt Comer to the forum. Comer is Holmes’ pick as a guest Council Member for the month of January. While Comer is not yet a resident, he lives in the area and plans to move to Corydon in the very near future.
Jaeckel introduced Mike Moran. Moran is Jaeckel’s pick as a guest Council Member for the month of January. Moran moved to Corydon last year and has expressed an interest in City government and issues at previous meetings.
Sharon Anderson addressed the Council in regards to the costs associated with renting roll-offs from Midwest Sanitation vs. C & E Trucking. Rob Davis stated that the contract between the City and Midwest Sanitation did not address roll-offs and as such, the City could not prevent C & E from bringing roll-offs into town. Jaeckel promised both parties that the City would take another look at the contract and look into the reported cost differences. Anderson will receive a call by Wednesday morning in regards to the debris from her business.
Jaeckel presented the first reading of ORDINANCE 337, AN ORDINANCE AMENDING CHAPTER 13.16.040 OF THE CORYDON MUNICIPAL CODE. The amendment increases the minimum sewer fee from $30.00 to $40.00 after publication, third (3rd) reading and approval by Council.
