Council receives water update

Thursday, July 19, 2012

KNIGHTSVILLE -- The Knightsville Town Council met for its monthly meeting recently and received an update on its water system improvement project.

MEI engineer Brian Bullock and Kristy Jerrell, West Central Indiana Economic Development Group, -- both of whom are working with the council on the water project -- met with Brazil Mayor Brian Wyndham to discuss utilizing Brazil's meter pit.

According to Bullock, Brazil has ongoing water projects and Knightsville's request may be able to be added in with Brazil's projects.

Meanwhile, Clerk-Treasurer Charlotte Reyher informed the council the 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 -- had arrived.

The bench was done for a cost of $300 by Fred Bault, Affordable Stone, Brazil.

The council talked about ideas of where to place the bench in Knightsville Park and if it wanted to have a dedication service.

The council agreed it would be a good idea to conduct a dedication service when the exact placement of the bench is decided and the public would be invited.

In related news, Reyher brought up the idea of a street dedication for Spc. Fields, which would be similar to what the City of Brazil did for Cpl. Gregory Stultz.

The council agreed to continue looking into what the process of a street dedication entails.

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