Greensburg Board of Works

The Greensburg Board of Works met on Monday.

Police Chief Mike McNealy formally invited the board to their National Night Out on Tuesday, August 3. The event is from 5 pm to 8 pm at North Park and is open to the public. This offers a nice way for community members to meet officers. There will be good food, music, plenty of demonstrations including bola wrap and K-9 dogs. Kids at the event will also be able to race against the dogs and see who is faster. McNealy will be holding a physical agility test as well as a written test on August 7 for hirable officers. This will be from 8 am to 12 pm. There are no current openings at the station as of now, however there could be in the near future.

Wastewater Superintendent Jeff Smith presented pay application #4 in the amount of $251,051.72 for the Greensburg Wastewater Treatment Plant. This was approved. Smith presented the pretreatment discharge permits. The 4 permits were for Honda, Delta, Houck Industries, and Decatur Hills. These were approved. The board congratulated Jeff Smith on retiring after 23 years of working for the city on October 29.

City Engineer Ron May presented the storm water utility rate amendment. This activates task 7 and helps move the process forward on the project. This was approved if the city council approves.

Mayor Joshua Marsh gave his updates. The READI Grant is being worked on and they are competing for our $50 million. The city hall renovation has been delayed due to completion of work and they are hopeful for the end of August. There will be a City Hall Open House on September 25 from 10 am to 1 pm. There will be a budget workshop on August 16 at 5:30 pm in EOC.
