The Brandenburg City Council worked through a short agenda during their regular meeting Monday (9/11) night.
The Council recognized the residence of Rick Barr as the Yard of the Month for September. The council approved the second reading of a ordinance amending the city’s planning and zoning ordinance. Mayor Bryan Claycomb asked the council to approve Bethany Carr as the Planning and Zoning Administrative Assistant. The council unanimously approved the request.
Police Chief Brian Haag reported that donations have met the needs for the Shield 616 grant which will provide local law enforcement protective gear. A presentation ceremony will be held at Journey Church on Monday, November 20. Chief Haag said his department received 360 calls for service during the past month.
Public Works Director T.J. Hughes reminded the council and residents that annual fall hydrant flushing will take place beginning October 1. Water customers will need to check their water before doing laundry.
Mayor Claycomb presented a project for the council’s consideration to widen the curve in Main Street. He said the project would cost the city approximately $71,500. The scope of the project would be to remove the old milk house and old sidewalk and install a curb to route drainage water. After a brief discussion, the council approved the project to move forward. The project will be paid for ARPA funds. The city will seek a approval of a conditional issue permit from the Transportation Cabinet.
The council approved moving forward with deeding 5.541 acres of land from the old waste water treatment plant to Nucor Steel as part of the original interlocal agreement. The Council also approved a proposed access easement to have entry to the new waste water treatment plant.
