9/5/2018 - Greensburg City Council Meeting - Click here to print this information

The Greensburg City Council held a public hearing Tuesday evening on Ordinances 2018-9 (Greensburg Community Schools Budget); 2018-6 (City Budget); 2018-7 (Salaries); 2018-8 (Utility Salaries) and 2018-10 (Elected Officials Salaries). No one from the public addressed the council and the public hearing was closed.

After the conclusion of the public hearing, the council entered into regular session. The council passed the Ordinances from the public hearing on the first reading with the second reading scheduled for October 1st.

Greensburg Clerk-Treasurer Ashlee Green provided the council with Resolution 2018-16 for transfer of funds for the clerk-treasurer's office. Both transfers were from the Part-Time and Overtime line item. The council approved the resolution with $2,000 transferred to Other Services and Charges for upgraded Keystone software used for payroll.
The second transfer was for $7,000 to Machinery and Equipment for a new copier and related services.

She also presented the first reading of Ordinance 2018-5 for additional appropriations. The appropriations were for $22,000 for in-car cameras for the police department and $75,000 for the airport rotary and aviation fuel account. The airport board had sufficient funds, but did not budget enough for fuel. The council approved the additional appropriations.

Bryan Robbins, Executive Director of the Economic Development Corporation, discussed establishing an economic development target area for the development of a new phase of Lakeview Apartments. The new phase is due north of Tractor Supply and will consist of 7 buildings with 8 units in each building. The initial phase was granted a tax abatement in February 2001. The new area would have to go through committee and the redevelopment commission to establish an economic development target area before a tax abatement could be approved. The council determined that a resolution with a legal description of the property would be needed for the October meeting.

Mayor Dan Manus pointed out that the city did receive a $600,000 grant from OCRA for a portion of the Main Street project. He reported that the grant application for the railroad bridge feasibility study was submitted to INDOT.

The council will hold its next meeting on October 1st at 7:00 pm at Greensburg City Hall.
