COMMENTS

Brandon Seifert wanted to thank Derek Frederickson and Steve Carter for meeting with him and Dave Garman.  Brandon would like to see Council working hand in hand with developers of our community.

Pat Freck and Derek Frederickson met with the planning personnel on rezoning of O'Neil property. County has updated their zoning ordinances. They suggested that Huntertown needs to update ours. Pat, Derek, and Dave Garman will work on this.

Jay Stankiewicz, DLZ
   Jay received quarterly report from INDOT on the Gump Road project.
   Jay received an interesting inquiry from INDOT concerning Carroll Road as a rural road project. At this time, they are gauging interest in delaying Carroll Road project for 1-2 years. At that time, INDOT would pay 100% of construction costs which would be roughly $460,000. Cold patch may be needed for a temporary fix if this project is delayed.
   Brandon Seifert made a motion of expressing interest with INDOT'S offer to cover 100% of financing on Carroll Road project. Dave Garman seconded. Motion carried.

David Hawk, Town Attorney
   Dave received a copy of public notice from IURC stating our cause is scheduled for final order on Wednesday.

Gary Grant made a motion to adjourn. Brandon Seifert seconded.

Next Council Meeting is Monday, June 1, 2015 at 6:00 p.m.
