The City of Corydon Sept. 6 council meeting began with a public hearing regarding the intent to seek finance for the Corydon Fire Department’s new equipment.

“Corydon City Hall has not received either oral or written comments,” City Clerk Ann Stevens reported.

Resolution 2018-37, a resolution for financing the Corydon Fire Department equipment through the city’s L.O.S.T. fund was approved.

Then the audience was given to Nancy Buss of Hall Engineering.

“On the 31st of this month, I did receive the updated proposal from Nexom, which would revise the cost of the Sagar equipment,” Buss said.

The council reviewed the new proposal form over the costs of the Sagar system that was prepared in 2015. The annual cost would be $98,715, which includes labor, labor hours, supplies, maintenance and repair, annual electric cost and insurance.

Buss also reported that the DNR was more receptive to using the new technology, although they still had questions for her.

“We’re narrowing down the questions as far as whether or not it will be DNR approved, but my understanding is it will probably need to be addressed in a wastewater facility plan and just say that this is how we’re planning to handle these things if the DNR has questions,” Buss added.

The 2017/2018 audit report from Faller, Kincheloe & Co. was approved. The council also approved a liquor license renewal for Bowling Green Lanes and Hy-Vee.

The council discussed the LeCompte Memorial Library wall and recognized the hard work from Redyn’s Masonry on fixing the brick wall.

The next meeting was scheduled for Sept. 19 at 7 p.m.
