The Brazil City Council will address several items of new business at its regular session at 7 p.m. tonight.
The Council will conduct first readings of three ordinances affecting city government, sales of potential Meth ingredients and water service connections:
- Ordinance 5-2005, which establishes a fixed asset capitalization policy for the city of Brazil and its various departments.
- Ordinance 6-2005, which establishes limits on sales of products containing ephedrine, pseudoephe-drine and phenylpropano-lamine due to the Methamphetamine problem. Ward Two Councilman Marty Beasley is sponsoring the ordinance.
- Ordinance 7-2005, which amends a portion of the Brazil Code of Ordinances regarding water service connections into the city's water system.
Matters pertaining to resolutions will also be addressed. The Council will conduct the first reading of Resolution 2-2005, to approve the use of utility funds from the Brazil City Water and Sewer Operating Funds for the purpose of an additional change till. Meanwhile, Ward Three Councilwoman Ann Bradshaw is sponsoring a resolution proposal urging the Indiana General Assembly, State of Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission and the local Alcoholic Beverage Board of Clay County to stop the proliferation of alcohol outlets commonly referred to as gas stations and convenience stores.
Council members will also hear one citizen request to rename Colfax Street north of Hendrix Street to the end. They will hear a separate citizen request for a stop street northbound and southbound at the intersection of Ashley and Olive streets.
In old business, the Council will conduct the second reading, required for final passage, of Ordinance 4-2005, which amends the Brazil Code of Ordinances by designating stop streets in the corporate limits of Brazil and provides penalties for subsequent violations.
