The Brandenburg City Council’s regular monthly meeting was held on Monday.

The Council approved last month’s minutes unanimously. Bryan Claycomb made a motion to approve a rezoning on Maple Grove from R2 to R3. Bruce Fackler seconded the motion, which then passed unanimously.

Claycomb was also appointed to another three-year term on the Meade County/Brandenburg Industrial Development Board. That motion, which passed unanimously, was made by Bill Basham and seconded by Michael Kelly. Claycomb abstained from the vote.

David Pace told the Council to still count on May 20 as the dedication of the Gerry Lynn Memorial Park at Buttermilk Falls. He said that they are also still accepting donations for the project.

The city issued three building permits in March and three sign permits. They received 345 credit card payments and 25 applications for utilities. They also approved two businesses licenses last month.

Additionally, Mayor Ronnie Joyner said that City Hall is now open to the public. The Council will also be moving their monthly meeting back to City Hall after previously holding meetings at the Fairgrounds.

Brandenburg Police Chief Brian Haag said they are still waiting on the final report from the ATF regarding the house explosion that occurred in Brandenburg. He also said that they are still actively trying to hire another police officer for the department.

The Council voted to widen a water main from 4 inches to 8 inches on Old Ekron Road between WesBanco and Brandenburg Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. The cost is estimated to be approximately $10,000 for materials. Basham made the motion, which was seconded by Claycomb and passed unanimously.

Joyner said that, once the final signature is obtained, the city will begin advertising for bids for the downtown sidewalk project. He also said that they’re in the process of potentially redesigning the light poles that will be placed downtown in an effort to make them look professional.
