Fishers Town Council update 11/20
What happened: Council approved the consent agenda that included a resolution to declare Town of Fishers property as surplus.
What it means: The town’s staff needs approval from the council to make property surplus items. The items declared surplus in the last town council meeting included the decommissioned Barrington Estates Wastewater Treatment Plant, three submersible pumps, servers, switches and a scanner, according to a council action form from Nathan George, deputy town manager. The plant and pumps are set for auction, and the electronic equipment will be traded or auctioned.
What happened: Council approved the consent agenda, which included a resolution for transferring the town’s funds.
What it means: In order to pay up on various items, the council needed to approve the transfer of funds. This included Future of Fishers expenses, which amounted to $46,355.41, according to an itemized list provided by Maura Leon-Barber, director of public relations. The overall funds transfer amounted to $282,535.00, encompassing other administration, fire and police needs.
What happened: Second reading was held to for an amendment to the Seasons Gardens PUD
What it means: A petitioner, Akin Enterprises, is looking to get an amendment to the PUD at Cumberland Crossing (126th Street and Cumberland Road). The petitioner is looking to have a mixed-use development at the location. Town staff recommended the council to hold second and third reading on the item, but after a lengthy discussion of the uses at the location – including a kennel – the councilors did not follow the advice. They’ll come back with revisions at third reading.
What happened: Council approved an ordinance to appoint people to town boards and commissions.
What it means: A new committee, the Fishers Marketplace Planned Unit Development, had spots that needed to be filled, according to a council action form. Chuck Gillespie and Shawn Curran were added to the new committee. They both are already part of other PUD committees.
