PIERCETON — The Pierceton Town Board started its meeting Monday, July 9, with the recognition of two new reserve officers.
Judge Joe Sutton swore in Ryan Piper and Nicholas Scott at the meeting. The room was packed with family members of both officers present for the ceremony.
“The community and citizens of Pierceton are very blessed to have these two on board,” said Town Marshal Tim Sammons.
After the ceremony, the board continued its discussion of the senior center and its usage. The board is planning to make edits to its contract with the senior center regarding keys to the building and the facility’s usage. The board also mentioned making adjustments to parking at the building since signage there states it is senior center parking only.
The board will have a final copy of the contract completed by next month’s meeting when a senior center representative is present to approve the edits.
During the meeting, Sammons discussed the WatchGuard camera system and a new squad car. Currently, the police department only has one functioning video recording system. The board decided to table the WatchGuard discussion to next month’s meeting in order to learn more about funding for it.
The board approved the purchase of a new squad car.
Pierceton Days organizer Kim Rose was also present at the meeting. A pre-planning day will be held at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 11 at the community building. Those interested in helping with the event are strongly encouraged to attend. Pierceton Days will be held Aug. 3 and 4.
In other business:
- The meeting minutes for June 11 and a special meeting held June 20 were approved.
- The next town council meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 13.
