The September 12, Poseyville Town Council meeting was short and sweet as board member Steve Ahrens was unable to attend the meeting. However, Ron Fallowfield and Bruce Baker were present and quorum was met in order to continue with the meeting.
Julie Mayo of the Poseyville Utility office announced a new gas tracker for August, September and October consumption months would create a 10 percent decrease on utility bills in September, October and November. The board approved the new gas tracker rate of 0.08193/ccf.
The council approved a request by Chris Neaveill, Poseyville Volunteer Fire Department Chief to add a new member. Chris Klostermann was recently voted in by the fire department membership.
The council also approved ordinance 2012-09-12-01 to adopt the budget. Poseyville advertised $537,006 for their overall budget estimate.
Work will soon continue on the new town hall that was begun during the summer. Baker stated he had recently spoken to ECI Construction in regards to the project. They will resume work this week and intend to stay at the job site until the project is completed.
Approval of ordinance 2012-08-15-01 was tabled until Attorney William H. Bender completes his review of the Fair Housing Ordinance. The ordinance is already mandated by federal law and council members questioned the need for their approval.
A fall town-wide yard sale will be held on October 6. Anyone who would like to have a garage sale location included on a map must have the information to Janet Staley by September 21. Staley can be contacted at 874-3168.
The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 10, at 4:30 p.m. in the Poseyville Community Center.
