With recent city events highlighted by Pike County organizations, Bowling Green has seen a great deal of community support. This was a highlight of Monday night’s Board of Aldermen meeting.
The meeting was called to order at 5:30 p.m. by Mayor Jim Moore. Alderman Kim Luebrecht was not present.
Board members present at the time unanimously approved the previous meeting’s minutes, warrants, and treasurer’s reports without discussion.
Present aldermen also approved the first and second reading of a presented bill. The bill, titled “Enter into a contract with the convention and visitors bureau for administration of the bureau” was approved, and is now known as Ordinance 1730.
Mayor Moore then recognized the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce, represented by board member Jerry Hickerson, for their sponsorship of the recent Park Days.
Following this presentation, Moore asked to recognize the Rotary Club for their sponsoring the recent Lakefest. On behalf of the club, members Don Wickenhauser and Ed Lawson received the certificate.
The board heard Harold Wilson, asking permission to camp at the Bowling Green Municipal Airport for his group’s power parachute event. Wilson’s group will be at the airport July 26 through 28, weather permitting. With some brief discussion, permission was granted by the board.
Board members also approved the blower repairs at the wastewater treatment plant, and for up to 85 percent of Walmart sales tax revenue to be allocated to the project fund.
Brief discussion of a requested sewer abatement brought an approval for $37.63 to be allocated to Nancy Vincent.
A request was presented to the board for Bat Creek Brewery. Ryan Daffron, for the brewery, had requested an approved liquor license for malt liquor (beer) and wines to be sold by the drink at the brewery. This motion was approved by all present alderpersons.
The Mayor requested a reappointment for Ed Henderson to the airport advisory committee, which was approved.
The meeting was adjourned at 5:55 p.m.
