Greensburg City Council

Greensburg City Council met on Tuesday.

The board approved to amend the agenda to remove the discussion of ordinance 2022-07.

Fire Chief Nate Stoermer requested the authorization of expense to DLZ. This has been reviewed by legal council and would be $75,000 for the total service agreement. The board approved this to not exceed $75,000.

Jeff Whitaker came to the board to discuss the recently named private road, Military Drive. At last months meeting they named the private road Military Drive and Whitaker wanted it to be named Progress Road. Whitaker was under the impression that the board had to vote on his name choice. Whitaker is requesting they rename the road Progress Road. The board approved the name change, excluding the portion of road that continues on Memorial Way, with a vote of 3-2. One council member did not agree with the name change because the business owner only answered the name request email a day before and because it disrupts the military name theme of the area.

Mayor Josh Marsh presented ordinance 2022-08 for amendment of ordinance 2021-10 for golf carts. This was approved. Ordinance 2022-09 for amendment of ordinance 2019-40 for UTVs was approved.

Wastewater Superintendent Zeke Smith presented the MS4 services contract with Burke Engineering. This is for Burke Engineering to help them navigate the new mandates for the MS4 program through IDEM. There are a lot of tricky milestones that need to be hit within the year and this would be an extension of the current contract to help navigate these. This was approved.
