During the meeting the Grove Cemetery committee made it known that the chapel inside the cemetery is in need of expensive repairs and without donations the committee will be looking for a cost effective way to tear down the chapel.
During comments Russ Cahill took the podium and thanked Jim Hites for his work and getting the park cleaned, as was brought up in the previous meeting. Cahill also informed the council that a sensor for the left turn lane of the intersection by McDonald’s was broken and causing the light to turn on when no one was there. Hites informed the council that a repair man has been notified of the issue.
Finally, in new business, an ordinance was passed to give more money to the Kenton Municipal Swimming Pool, this was done because with the closing of the pool by the city a further assessment was requested to insure the closing of the pool was done properly as well as have an assessment done to see what repairs are needed to the area. Because this process is beginning on September 10th (one day after the next regularly scheduled Kenton City Council meeting) the council suspended the three reading rule and passed the ordinance.
The next meeting of the Kenton City Council will be held on September 9th at 7pm.
