COMMENTS/REPORTS

Derek reported that the Town has received a one-time Loit Distribution from the County in the amount of $82,326.99. The Community Crossings Matching Grant Program is offering a 50/50 match to the Loit Distribution. This would be helpful for the 2016-2017 Street projects. The 3 roads in most need of repairs are: 1) Lima North of Willow Creek, 2) Carroll Road East of State Road 3 to corporate boundary, and 3) Hunter Road from the abandon railroad to the West corporate boundary. Grant needs to be filed by July 15, 2016. If Grant is approved, it will be awarded on August 2, 2016.

Clerk asked Council to consider purchasing a podium to be used in the meeting room. The cost would be under $200. Council approved.

Gary Grant reported that we have recently received a canine that has already been put to work and then some. He was able to track an dangerous individual and has located some illegal drugs. Thank you Brandon Reichert for a good job with your canine.

Tim Schobert
   1) The contractor on the Gump Road project was going to remove the damaged Huntertown sign with his crane, in return for allowing them to put their trailer on our property. They will need the crane the entire time, so would be charging us overtime to drop sign. Don is getting quotes from a professional company to remove.
   2) Gump Road off road work is complete. They are close to starting on the actual road.

Brandon Reichert
   The City has seen an outbreak of theft to vehicles. He suggested keeping your cars locked and turning on outside lights at night.

Brandon Seifert made a motion to adjourn, Gary Grant seconded. All in favor.
