The Greensburg City Council met Monday evening. David Fry presented the council with Resolution 2018-15 to designate an arts and cultural district. He stated that creating a cultural corridor was identified in the community visioning and Stellar application process. Cities can be selected with a State Cultural District Designation. While there is no direct financial benefit to the city, it can be used in the promotion and marketing of Greensburg.
Mr. Fry stated that there are already 30 assets that have been identified in the area from the Tree County Players facility down Main Street to the library and into Rebekah Park. Areas like the 10 acre green space by Arbor Grove could be included as well as the High School Auditorium since it hosts special events like Chautauqua. It was pointed out that festivals and other special events would be included. As part of the process, the Arts and Cultural Council would be reestablished, with 8 individuals already committed with several others expected soon. The council approved the resolution.
Greensburg Police Chief Brendan Bridges requested an additional appropriation of about $22,420 from the new public safety tax to purchase 4 in-car cameras. The purchase would ensure each police vehicle would have a camera. The council approved the request.
City Clerk/Treasurer Ashlee Green notified the council that the budget workshop will take place on August 20th at 6:30 pm. She noted that the State Board of Accounts will hold a regional training session in the City Hall gym on August 22nd. It is expected that between 50-75 people within a 50 mile radius will be attending the session.
Mayor Dan Manus pointed out that lids on trash totes must be closed when placed on the curb. The city has begun tagging and not picking up totes that aren't in compliance.
Terrah Nunley was introduced to the council as the new interim director for Mainstreet Greensburg.
The council will hold its next meeting on September 4th at 7:00 pm at Greensburg City Hall.
