Council hears update on water project

Friday, June 15, 2012

The Knightsville Town Council met for its monthly meeting Tuesday night and was updated on the water system improvement project.

Brian Bullock from Midwest Engineers and Kristy Jerrell, WCIEDD grant administrator, were both on hand to give the council an update and answer questions.

Bullock presented the council with a summary of the first draft of the selected proposals for the improvement project, which as it stands now would total $1,655,500.

However, the council decided it would be in its best interest to continue looking over the proposal to make sure it's tailored specifically to the town's need and the council's budget.

Bullock and the council agreed to continue working on the proposal so the project can continue moving forward.

Meanwhile, the council discussed purchasing a memorial stone bench for the late Spc. Arronn Fields, 27, Knightsville, who died from injuries sustained during a rocket-propelled grenade attack May 21, in Afghanistan.

According to Clerk-Treasurer Charlotte Reyher, the bench has been priced at $350-400, and will be engraved.

The council said it would continue looking into the ways it will pay for the bench, which include donations from the public and some of the cost being taken care of by the council.

The council also voted to pass Ordinance No. 4-2012, which is in regard to anti-nepotism.

The ordinance, which is pursuant to Indiana law, prohibits the hiring of relatives who would be in the "direct line of supervision of the other relative."

The ordinance also requires each elected officer to annually certify in writing -- subject to the penalties for perjury -- no later than Dec. 31, that the officer has not violated this statute.

The Knightsville Town Council meets regularly the second Tuesday of every month, at 7 p.m., at the Knightsville Community Center.
