Mike S. asked if there were any additions or corrections to the July minutes; there being none, minutes were approved as written.


Linda Miller was in attendance to provide a brief update on Old Fashion Days coming up Labor Day Weekend.  They have their insurance in place with Porter Insurance; security is set; the sheriff’s department will again have their command center in town all weekend.   Electricity is being updated in several places throughout town.  They still are in need of volunteers!

  2. Eggers Alley Poles – everything will be done prior to Old Fashion Days.
  3. LTAP has approved our Pavement Asset Management Plan and INDOT has accepted our paper work for the Community Crossings Matching Grant. We should hear something by the end of this month. Beth presented Ordinance 2016-2 for the LOIT Special Distribution Fund (also for this project) to be passed on second reading. Rebecca made a motion to approve;  Mike R. seconded.  Motion passed unanimously.  Beth will advertise.
  4. Resolution 2016-2 – Complete Streets Policy – Rebecca made a motion to approve; Mike S. seconded; motion passed unanimously.
  6. Salary Ordinance – Beth presented the Council with the 2017 Salary Ordinance. The position of Town Assistant was added; no other changes were made.  Mike R. made a motion to approve; Rebecca seconded.  Motion passed unanimously.
  7. Sidewalks –Harold met with the Hendricks County Plan Commission regarding possibly working with North Salem on our sidewalk issues. They are willing to work with us and suggested sending them a proposal.  Harold will put this together for Council to review and discuss.
  9. Mark – is in the process of obtaining bids from paving companies. Hopefully we will receive some money from the INDOT grant to get some paving done.
  10. NSPD – for the record, Mike S. presented the NSPD report for the month of July. John said that he had the  truck tail gate repaired and the new decals are done.
  11. Council – Rebecca suggested that we send a reminder in the water bills regarding our Gold Cart Ordinance; she also mentioned that she will be out of town for the October Council Meeting. In addition, she said she is planning to attend a meeting in Roachdale in September regarding the Main Streets program.  She also mentioned the upcoming IACT webinar on Code Enforcement scheduled for September 13th.
  12. Harold Blake – no report.
  13. Clerk-Treasurer – Beth asked the Council about getting new flooring throughout the building. The carpet that was installed in 2007 has not held up very well and hardwood (or hardwood like) flooring would be more durable.  Harold suggested that we put a notice in the water bills to see if anyone in town is interested in giving us a bid.  Beth will include in this month’s water bills.
  14. PUBLIC:



There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 6:48 pm.  The next Council Meeting will be September 1, 2016 at 6:00 pm.
