Tonya said that two stop signs are needed at First & Davis and at First & Gilbert streets by the high school also yield signs are needed on Second & Lincoln by the church, Larry pointed out that if a sign has not already been at the intersections an ordinance would have to be adopted for them, the board agreed to see how many signs will be needed around the town and draft an ordinance for all of them at once. Tonya also mentioned that Davis St. by the high school was in need of some repairs.
Mike Kelley spoke to the board about his request for the water line and tap. Mike had requested a two inch line and tap be installed but a three fourths inch line and tap was installed he also said it was installed in the wrong location, since there was no paperwork on the agreement he thought he had with the town he wanted to know what will be done. Larry explained that he had researched the code from the state and spoke to our engineer about this and it clearly says a three fourths inch line can be used, Larry said he didn’t know the work had already been done and after some discussion about this situation Larry said he would look into this to see what if anything can be done about this problem.
Leonard Akers asked about the electric speed limit signs. Larry said the price for the fixed signs was about $1596.00, Jim Moore asked Curtis his thoughts on these signs, Curtis said they could help but it could also go the other way instead of slowing down they could see how fast they can go. Curtis said he would check on these types of signs for the town, the board said they would be looking at maybe getting two of them for the town.
Mike Ray spoke about the coyote problem that was mentioned at the last meeting, he said the DNR suggested to try to keep animals safe, pick up food that could be laying around, he said they can be trapped but it was illegal to release them without permission, the DNR representative that Mike spoke to said it’s probably a good idea to just try to live with them.
Chad Moore asked if the town could paint a center line on Fourth St. on the east side of SR 63 to Gilbert St. he said a lot of people swing wide onto the road and he hoped this would keep them in there lane, Chad also said the fire department had ordered two new walk in doors for the front and side and a new window, they should be installed in the next month or so and that his department is working on next year’s grant from the county.
