2.19.20 – Council Meeting Minutes
FEBRUARY 19, 2020
The regular meeting of the Corydon City Council was called to order by Mayor Pro-Tem Nathan Bennett. Present were council members Christian, Holmes, Rodgers, and Rupe. Others in attendance were Deputy Clerk in Training Eva Moore, Glenn Williamson, Jen Reed from the Times-Republican, and the Randy Sharp family.
Randy Sharp addressed the council about animal control issues. The council agreed to look into what can be done.
The condition of the streets was brought up. Bennett stated that the city has a ten year plan for street repairs. Rodgers stated that the city only has three employees to repair streets and asked for patience during the winter weather.
Glenn Williamson stated he did not receive a water bill in the mail, but did receive a disconnect notice. He felt that he should not be made to pay the 10% late fee if he did not receive it in the mail. He has since signed up for auto pay at Corydon State Bank. Feels if it happened to him, it is probably happening to other customers. Council stated they will discuss option to forgive one late charge as a one-time courtesy moving forward.
