Klipsch, the official resig- nation from City Services Manager Bri- an Davis was received through email by most of the common council mem- bers prior to the 6 p.m. Monday Board of Public Works regular monthly meet- ing. The mayor said Davis had advised him that he would not be attending the meetings of the water company, public works or common council that night. Klipsch said he will be accepting rec- ommendations, applications and doing interviews for the City Services Man- ager position very soon. The mayor told the council that the city has "good people" and that "they know what to do." He said Todd Jenkins is now a licensed sewer plant operator and that Matt Robinette is licensed as well but will operate as an assistant be- cause there is a time requirement to be met after licensing. Klipsch was pos- itive about the transition, stating that "everyone is on board" with the devel- opment and that city projects, such as the closing of Main Street for the Buf- falo Trace Festival, fire department sta- tion opening and the I-69 Master Plan, are on track. Klipsch explained to the council that "all the permits to close Main Street from Ninth Street to Fifth Street" are complete after "working on it for more than two months." He advised that sig- nage is required for the closing 14 days in advance, according to the Indiana Department of Transportation. Klipsch said the Petersburg bicen- tennial celebration will feature a cen- ter stage on Main Street, pageants and a bed race, among other attrac- tions, plus a Saturday evening closing with fireworks. He stated Onyett Fab- ricators is manufacturing two beds to be used in the race or contestants can provide your own. He said the city will have an entry in the bed race and Pe- tersburg City Clerk-Treasurer Tammy Selby would be the driver. Selby said, "I think it is going to be a lot of fun for everyone." Asked about her driving the bed, she commented, "I know the guys on the team will do a good job and they said there will be hay bails at the end. Hopefully, I won't fly over them." Petersburg Police Chief Chuck Baumgart is promoting the Firemen vs. Police fundraiser, with stickers sup- porting firemen or police being $5 each. He said, "The fundraiser is to help pay for free carnival rides at the festival for the kids." Local business and commu- nity organizations, along with the fire- man versus police fundraiser, will gen- erate funds to pay the rides. Baumgart has begun distributing the stickers and Firemen versus Police jars for collection to area businesses. Pres- ently, the locations include: PC-1, Cir- cle K, Hucks, Subway, Casey's (Septem- ber 1) and The Press-Dispatch office. Baumgart is in the process of contact- ing other area businesses and expects to have an extensive list of locations to make donations and/or buy stickers. He said so far, most people have dropped a five or ten or 20 but haven't taken a $5 sticker. He expects those with children with them to take a sticker for a child in- stead of just making the donation. A leader board with a red bar for the fire fighters and blue for the police will depict the donation levels. The old po- lice station at the corner of Sixth and Main streets will have the graphic on the store front windows. Updates and further information concerning the fes- tival is available at buffalotracefestival. com. CARDINALS TICKET AUCTION Prior to that date, a silent auction fun- draiser will take place for four St. Lou- is Cardinals tickets for August 26. The closing date for the Cardinals tickets will be August 15. Bidding can be do- ne on Facebook and will also benefit the free rides project. Chief Baumgart sup- plied the tickets with the bidding start- ing at $400 for all four. FIRE STATION DEDICATION Mayor Klipsch announced that the dedication for the new fire department station on Illinois Street has been ten- tatively set for Sunday, September 3. Other action by the city included claims for cleaning wells three and four, and also included pump and mo- tor repairs. Petersburg Water Compa- ny Board Member Bertis Jenkins said, "now we have two good wells." Klipsch added, "We now have less draw down and are in good shape." He said some time in the future the other two wells will be renovated. Klipsch also noted that the Umbaugh water rate study was ongoing, as was the sewer grant. It was reported that the rate study could be complete in late August. The I-69 master plan being for- mulated presently is "unique to this ar- ea of Petersburg with lots of acreage," unlike Petersburg's plan. Baumgart told the council that the de- partment Explorer was being equipped with a sensor due to the report from Ford stating police Explorers were hav- ing a problem with carbon monoxide en- tering vehicles. He said their Explorer didn't seem to have the problem. Coun- cilman Gary Leavitt said the problem could be from after market equipment mounted by drilling through the floor and into the exhaust system. Baumgart stated that had not been done with their vehicle. He stated he appreciated councilman John Melhiser looking into a problem with one of their patrol cars and diag- nosing a bad bendix when Baumgart thought the vehicle might have a major problem or have to be replaced. In other business, Leavitt inquired about the pallet of mulch at Lakeview and SR 57 that had been blocking the view of the roadway. Baumgart report- ed that the pallet at Circle K had been moved but Leavitt thought it might still be dangerous. There was no report on any action taken against residents living in RVs, campers or buses in violation of the city zoning ordinance. During the last city council meeting, it was said that cita- tions would be issued to several peo- ple living in RVs, campers or buses in a residential zone inside the city lim- its. There was also no update on the streetlight situation where three poles fell over when struck by a delivery truck last month. Klipsch had met with Duke Energy concerning the matter recent- ly. The city has several options, includ- ing leasing streetlight poles. The request to close an alley between Fourth and Fifth streets, and Sycamore and Locust streets was tabled because one property owner had not been con- tacted. Klipsch said that everything is complete, including the locates. City Clerk-Treasurer Tammy Selby reported that there is one more property owner's signature needed for the alley closing. The next meeting of the council is at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, September 4. Craig recipient of Pike County Farm Bureau, Inc. scholarship Reid W.
