PIERCETON — The Pierceton Town Council met Monday, Sept. 14. The brief agenda included golf carts, the sewage project and a community event coming up next year.
First, the council read the new golf cart ordinance for the first time. This was simply a first reading, so no decisions were made. The ordinance began by defining what a golf cart is. It included the regulation of golf carts and will include the necessity of a driver’s license, hours of operation, speed limit, passenger limit and that a violation would be between $50 and $250.
Next, the council approved a credit from Flow meters. The meters had malfunctioned, causing the town to be overcharged.
The council also approved a $121,005.60 for the sewer project happening in Pierceton right now.
President of the Pierceton Chamber of Commerce Bernadene Boggs was there to announce the beginning of planning for a celebration of Pierceton’s 150th birthday next year. She and the chamber of commerce are hoping that this can be a community event, that will get churches and residents involved throughout Pierceton.
The last topic addressed was the trailway scheduled to be made around the baseball diamond. The park board has approved the construction of the trailway and is anticipating it to begin in October.
The next Pierceton Town Council meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 13.
