1/2/2018 - Greensburg City Council Meeting - Click here to print this information

The Greensburg City Council met Tuesday evening. Prior to the regular meeting, a public hearing was held to discuss Franklin Street improvements and grants for the projects. The project was originally part of the Stellar application and would cover the outer portion of the square between E. Main and E. Washington Streets. Deb Lilly from ARa provided a briefing for the project. The overall project would cost $750,000 with $600,000 coming from grants and a required 20 percent match of $150,000 from the city. Fifty-four percent, or $327,000, of the grant money is expected to benefit low to moderate income residents. After a brief discussion, the public hearing was closed and the regular council meeting went into session.

The council reelected Jamie Cain as Council President. The council approved Resolution 2018-3 declaring corporate limits of the City of Greensburg as an Economic Revitalization Area. The previous Resolution 2006-7 contained a specific map of the city limits that is now outdated. The new resolution simply states "city limits" which allows adjustment in cases of future annexation. Deb Lilly of ARa, presented Resolution 2018-1, Application Submission and Local Match Commitment for the Franklin Street improvement project. The council approved the resolution and authorized Mayor Dan Manus to sign grant documents for the project.

City Engineer Ron May briefed the council on two ordinances. In Ordinance 2018-1, the city would remove a stop sign on Hendricks Street at Stewart Street. The council suspended rules and passed the Ordinance on the 1st reading. In Ordinance 2018-2, angle parking along the east side of South Broadway Street from Main Street to the railroad tracks would be converted to parallel parking. Parking spaces would decrease from 6 to 5 and will require remarking spaces. The council suspended rules and passed the Ordinance on the 1st reading. Police Chief Brendan Bridges requested tabling transfer of funds until the February meeting.

The council agreed to encumber funds for money set aside from Washington Township in last years budget. A total of approximately $99,000 will be used, with the largest amount of approximately $55,000 going for heating and cooling projects for the Police Department and Fire Station 2.

The council will hold its next meeting on February 5th at 7:00 pm at Greensburg City Hall.
