The Culver Town Council members took action this week to discuss several ordinances that were up for consideration.
An ordinance allowing additional appropriation requests to be carried out was adopted. It authorizes the expenditure of $17,500 toward the Stellar efforts. Clerk-Treasurer Karen Heim previously explained that they couldn’t foresee expenses related to the efforts because it was unknown if the town would achieve the designation. These additional funds that are available in the budget are needed to fulfill needs.
Also, the ordinance requests an additional appropriation for the Culver Tree Commission in the amount of $2,500 for the purchase of trees.
A public hearing was held on this ordinance at the last meeting with no public comment.
The Culver Town Council members approved the ordinance on second and third readings.
An ordinance was approved on first reading that allows a retiring police officer, who has served at last 20 years in law enforcement, the ability to retain his or her service weapon, badge and identification cards.
The last ordinance discussed was also approved on first reading. The ordinance allows the current Code of Ordinances manual to be updated to current regulations.
