Cynthiana Town Board members met for their monthly meeting last Tuesday, June 11, and discussed a number of nuisance ordinance violations. Board members are vigilant in their duties to make its residents comply with their efforts to take pride in their town.
All new complaints must be filed on a written form at the town hall. Homeowners have the right to request a copy of the form for review once a complaint has been filed against them.
Bill Rogers of 10308 Gum Street will be sent a letter requesting tree limbs to be trimmed back away from the street. A letter will also be sent to 10458 Mill Street to clean up garbage and trash piles on the property. A request to mow tall grass and weeds will be sent to property owners at 10256 Evansville Street, 10300 Whiting Street and 11400 North Street.
Remnants of a home and garage at 10965 Highway 65 North will be demolished once the state fire marshal’s office has completed its investigation of the fire. Board members agreed not to pursue any action against the homeowner, Jackie Sinay, at this time due to the situation.
Clean-up of the home and property at 10260 Whiting Street is in progress as new residents work to move into the home. The previous residents left the home and property in complete havoc.
A letter will also be sent to the resident at 10819 Main Street regarding complaints of a dog barking causing a nuisance.
A special spring clean-up day will be held for Cynthiana residents on Saturday, June 22, beginning at 8 a.m. A dumpster for garbage will be available at the water plant. A special recycling service will also be on hand to accept a number of items including: computer, stoves, refrigerators, water heaters, washers, dryers, microwaves, bed frames, coffee makers, toasters, blenders, tin, gutters, table saws, grinders, chop saws, band saws, window air conditioners, central air conditioners, furnaces, grills, chest freezers, stereos, aluminum doors and windows. In return, the town will receive $.02 per pound reimbursement.
Posey County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) Director, Larry Robb, presented information about the county’s Code Red emergency alert system available to county residents. He explained that interested participants should visit the county’s website, www.poseycountygov.org, and click on the Code Red link. A person’s name, address and home phone and or cell phone should be entered. Those who do not have access to a computer can contact the EMA office at 838-1333. In the event of any type of emergency, the residents will be contacted via home or cell phone, whichever they chose. Types of emergency notifications are not limited to just severe weather warnings. Alerts can also include power outages, boil orders, evacuation orders or missing children.
Robb explained the system is geographically specific and residents with smart phones can get the app and receive text message alerts when they are traveling in other states. The county pays for the service and is free of cost to its residents.
Town Board members were pleased to have been chosen as the recipients of a $2,000 Oursler grant. The funds will be used to purchase mulch for the playground area in the park.
The next regular meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 9, at 6 p.m. in the town hall.
