The City of Corydon held their regular city council meeting on March 4, where Dan Sales with Cook Insurance handed over a check for $7,704.31. This dividend check was paid to the city based upon the policy the city paid into. Sales noted a bad year could affect the dividend check as it is based off the entire pool throughout the entire state, although the check amount continues to grow currently.
The City of Corydon insurance premium for the previous year was $45,974.
“Typically when we start the renewal we ask what is anticipated for budgets and we figure about a five percent increase,” said Sales. “This year it (insurance premium) came in at $45,968 so it was a little bit less than last year by a few dollars so it was pretty flat for the year.”
The council amended Ordinance 339, which would allow parking on portions of West State Street. This changes the previous ordinance that stated no parking was allowed between the hours of 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. any day of the week. The council waived the second and third reading.
In other agenda items a resolution to approve the 2019-2020 budget was approved following the publication and posted notices. The council also approved a resolution approving a purchase agreement with Electric Pump for the replacement of a VFD for Phase Conversion-West Lift Station.
A request from the County Resource Enhancement Committee to appoint a council member to the REAP Board was tabled until the council could collect more information on this role.
Following the meeting held on Feb. 20, Mayor Dennis Moorman

reached out regarding the moving of a high-powered line into residential area within City of Corydon limits. Moorman reached out following Larry Wilkinson’s attendance in the last meeting where Wilkinson voiced concern over this action.
“Were they receptive to you?” asked Council member Stan Rupe.
“They asked us to have it looked at by someone else so I sent it to Verle,” said City Clerk Ann Stevens.
“I think we owe it to Larry to back him up on this, take an extra step there and look into this,” Moorman added.
Guest council member Andrew Goben was introduced and will be joining the council members in all meetings held in March. A work session is scheduled for Wednesday, March 13 at 6 p.m. while the next regular meeting is set for Wednesday, March 20 at 7 p.m.
