SPENCER EVENING WORLD Thursday, April 29, 2010 Page 3 Gosport Council Continued from Page 1 a neighborhood crime watch program. The department requested $30 for the rental of the community building for a meeting for the crime watch organization. The board approved the request unanimously. Moving on to old business, the board approved a no parking ordinance aimed at 5th Street, from Walnut Street to County Line Road on Goss Street, on both sides. A motorized vehicle ordinance was also approved by a 2-1 vote, with Becky Welch abstaining, that would make it necessary for golf carts to have a permit and yearly inspection. It would also make it necessary for golf cart drivers to be licensed and carry insurance on the vehicle. Also discussed in old business was a proposal to raise water and/ or sewer rates in the future. It was explained that the sewer rate has not been raised since the 1990s. The board chose not to act on the agenda item until proper information has been gathered to determine the need to raise rates and the amount needed to increase. Butler, Fairman, Seufert’s Mike Turchi spoke next during Tuesday’s meeting, asking the board to execute the contract for the storm water project for the Department of Natural Resources in the amount of $665,407. Turchi spoke to the board about two power poles, one at 3rd & Main streets and the other at 2nd & Walnut streets, and their being in a dedicated right-of-way. Duke Energy is asking the town to pay $4,800 for the relocation of the two poles. Turchi announced that the money in question can be paid with grant funds. Another pole located mid-block on 4th Street north of Main Street could possibly need to be relocated at a later time. The board voted unanimously to approve the measure. In the final business of the night, Gosport resident and businessman John King spoke to the council regarding several issues. He announced that Hoosier Disposal will provide a 60-ton dumpster for a community clean-up day. Another dumpster is being sought at this time. After being brought to their attention by Mr. King, the board voted 3-0 to approve $251.10 for the repair of the Gosport fire bell, located in the town park, that was retired from service in 1959. In the final act of business, King discussed the old Monon Depot property issue which he is currently working on getting deeded back to the town. A licensed surveyor will be needed to determine the area in question and who the rightful owner is. The next meeting of the Gosport Town Council will take place on Tuesday, May 11 beginning at 6:30 p.m. in Gosport Town Hall. Clerktreasurer Wyatt Holsapple wished to remind residents that the town hall office will be closed on Tuesday, May 4 for election day.
