Bristol Town Council, Aug. 15, 2013

Posted on Aug. 16, 2013 at 1:00 a.m. | Updated on Aug. 16, 2013 at 1:15 p.m.

When: Thursday

Key action: Awarded the bid for the construction of Industrial Drive to Niblock Excavating for $845,717.35. The new road will connect Earthway Industrial Park, where Utilimaster is, to S.R. 15. Also voted against extending sanitary sewer as part of the project, lowering the total to $784,835.60. NIPSCO is slated to move five utility poles the first week of September to begin preparation for the new road.

Other actions:

Ÿ Approved releasing the balance of a lien against Golfview Manor Apartments and seeking no further payments of the unpaid balance on the account. In 2012, a broken water line eight feet underground created water and sewer bills that were much larger than usual.

Ÿ Approved having Umbaugh and Associates do a utility rate study for the water department at a cost of $5,900. The last rate study was done in 1999.

Ÿ Approved an additional appropriation of $16,900 from the police fire cumulative fund for Stortz couplings for the town’s larger fire hydrants.

Ÿ Approved seeking an additional appropriation of $2,800 from the police fire cumulative fund so the Bristol Fire Department siren will work in conjunction with the town’s new tornado sirens.

Ÿ Approved allowing the police department to purchase a new Impala for $22,900, replacing a 2006 police vehicle with 140,000 miles on it.

 FILE - In a Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014 file photo, Nikki Jones, of Spanish Lake, Mo, holds a button in support of Michael Brown while visiting the community in the apartment development near where he was fatally shot by police in Ferguson, Mo. By almost all accounts, Brown was engaged in some sort of physical struggle with Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson just moments before he was fatally shot. That confrontation, perhaps more than anything, may help explain why grand jurors ultimately decided not to indict Wilson for killing Brown.
