Daviess County Courthouse

A report on the Cupola building was given at this weeks’ meeting of the Gallatin Board of Aldermen.

City Administrator Tony Stonecypher said a committee will be advertising for roof bids.

Responding to a question from the Cupola building committee, aldermen stated the committees’ purpose is to provide ideas and plans to preserve the building; to be a sounding board for the community; and collect information from interested parties if the building can be placed on the market.

The city administrator was asked to provide a review regarding the 2014 state audit recommendations, capital improvement tax spending, and transportation tax spending at Gallatin.

On the possible sale of ten cemetery plots for city employees who die while employed with the city, Stonecypher collected questions from the aldermen and will develop the draft of a policy.

Stonecypher reported there are a few bidders interested in the water plant project. He also noted the city will receive a bid regarding maintenance services on the sewer collection system.

An ordinance was approved on the donation of sick time by city employees at Gallatin.
