Grayville City Council has short meeting to open September

The Grayville City Council met on Monday afternoon for the first time in September, and wrapped up a short agenda quickly.

An ordinance that would amend the Zoning Code to drop the Zoning Board from seven to five members was passed unanimously.

A developer’s agreement between the City and Driving Range Plus was approved.  It contained language similar to other agreements the City has entered into in the past.

Applications from Casey’s General Store to solicit donations at the four way stop for St. Jude’s on October 1 from 6 to 10 am and from the Lion’s Club for Candy Day on October 8  from 7 to 11am were approved unanimously.

The Council tabled a motion approving a new time clock system pending more information about contractual obligations.

In the Police Report, Chief Mann reported that during August, his officers answered 189 calls for service and opened 28 case files.  Grayville Police made 10 arrests, issued 19 citations and 40 warnings, filed three crash reports, and towed three vehicles. Mann told the Council the new police vehicle has been built, and is awaiting transport to Springfield, where it will be outfitted before delivery to Grayville. Mann also reported that he was proud of how his department operated during Grayville Days, and thanked the Fire Department for their assistance over the weekend.

Commissioner Jordan reported an oil income of $499.08.

Commissioner Brock thanked all those who were involved during Grayville Days, and Mayor Bisch echoed those statements.

The Council adjourned the meeting at 4:10, so the Council could attend a meeting in Mt. Carmel discussing the formation of a water district and building of a water treatment plant along with representatives from Albion, Mt. Carmel, Fairfield, and the Rural Wabash Water District.
