Good things come to those who wait. The Town of Cynthiana is getting a taste of that theory with lots of good news shared during their meeting Tuesday, November 13.
First, Clerk-Treasurer, Greta Mounts, informed those in attendance that the town had been on October 18, they were the recipients of the Oursler Grant. The town had applied for the grant back in the spring and were happy to hear they will be receiving $1,625. They plan to use the funds on various necessary repairs to the park shelter buildings. Mounts stated that the projects must be completed within the next six months or the money will have to be returned.
Cindy Martin added to the good news by informing the council that she is able to obtain several large trees at a reduced price. She offered a list of trees and their prices for board members to review. Martin stated she would work with Jack Brown to determine which trees in the park need to be replaced. Several have not fared well following the drought and Martin predicts they will die within the next few years. Her concern for keeping trees growing within the park prompted her to find good trees at an affordance price.
She requested volunteers to help dig holes and place the trees when they are ready to be planted in December. Board members agreed to purchase five trees and offered assistance when the trees are ready to be planted.
A Christmas in the Park activity will be planned for either December 8 or 15. Planners must check with Santa’s schedule to see when he is available to leave the North Pole to visit. The event will be held at the band shelter. Anyone who is able to donate Christmas decorations or volunteer to help with the activity should contact the town hall. Please watch upcoming issues of the Posey County News for more details.
Township Trustee, Steve Jarboe, informed council members that he planned to deliver Thanksgiving baskets to 24 Smith Township residents on Saturday, November 17. He expressed pride and appreciation to all those who were generous by donating canned goods and money to help make the project a successful one. Board member Jim Sheets volunteered to assist Jarboe with the deliveries.
Finally, Mindy Bourne of the Posey County Area Plan Commission, presented an amendment to the recently passed consolidated zoning ordinance. She informed the board that wording regarding, “right to use”, in B3 and M2 zoning districts must be changed to state, “use by special exception.” They approved her request.
The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 11, at 6 p.m. in the town hall.
