The Nashville City Council is getting a new member.
The Council at Thursday’s meeting accepted the resignation of Council member Dean Huge. Council members then approved the appointment of Sue Finke, a former member of the Council, to fill Huge’s seat through next year when it will be up for election. Huge did not attend the meeting.
In other appointments at the session, members of three boards were approved for new terms. For Planning Commission, Jay Colbrooke and Jeff Luechtefeld will serve three year terms; for Zoning Administration, Herb Wilkey will serve a seven year term; and for the Library, Aaron Epplin, Mary Karmeier and Deb Auld will serve three year terms.
Council members also noted that the Friends of the Library will have a book sale starting Sept. 24 in conjunction with Fall Festival.
Looking ahead to Halloween, the Council approved trick or treating on Saturday, Oct. 31, with formal hours to be publicized in the coming weeks.
In discussions about street issues, the Council moved to approve raising the speed limit on Mockingbird Road in the city.
The Council charged city utilities superintendent Blaine Middleton with seeking bids on a replacement for the raw water meter at the water plant. The meter calibrates the water coming into the plant.
Middleton will also advertise for a full-time employee at the Water Department to replace Kyle Krupp, who tendered his resignation effective Sept. 25.
Dates were set for hydrant flushing next month. Work will begin Oct. 5 and run through Oct. 16, with work beginning on the north side of town moving south over the following weeks.
