The Bowling Green city Board of Aldermen gathered for a brief, productive meeting Monday night, in which they approved two residential sewer abatements.

Before the regular meeting began, Mayor Jim Moore called a meeting of the shareholders to order, the alderpersons unanimously passed a resolution approving the shareholders’ board.

After adjourning from this brief shareholder meeting, Moore then called the regular gathering to order at 5:36 p.m.

Roll call reflected all alderpersons were present.

The board voted unanimously to approve the previous meeting’s minutes, presentation of warrants, and treasurer’s report.

There were no bills to be reviewed nor change orders or pay requests.

In new business, aldermen unanimously approved two sewer abatements: one for Joann Sharp in the amount of $22.73 and another for Allen Huff at $40.77.

With no miscellaneous or visitor’s comments, Moore asked the board for their closing statements or comments. Alderman Kim Luebrecht asked city BICE Mel Orf if a shed at 14th and 15th streets and Main had been taken care of. Orf noted he has been in contact with the property owner and that the shed will be torn down in the near future.

In the Mayor’s appointments and comments, Moore noted the board needs to consider whether or not they want to put a sales tax for street improvement on the upcoming ballot. He added they need to know before Jan. 28 to file the paperwork.

The Mayor also asked the board for their opinions on closing City Hall at noon on Christmas Eve. All those present approved this request.

With no other discussion or business on the agenda, the board adjourned to executive session at 5:43 p.m.
