Water Shut Off Addressed at Kenton City Council

Written by on January 13, 2020

The Kenton City Council Held a Meeting Monday Night 


Shortly before last nights meeting Patti Risner was sworn in as Council at Large and Ray Lawrence was sworn in as 4th Ward Council. 


During last night’s meeting the council passed an ordinance that allowed a property at 836 W. Franklin Street to be rezoned from a light manufacturing district to a general business district. 


Additionally, President of Council Joel Althauser made a motion to add an ordinance to the agenda that would allow for additional appropriations for the year of 2020. After a large discussion the ordinance was added to the agenda and amended to allow monies to come from Incidental funds rather than Rec Maintenance of Equipment. Then the ordinance had the three reading rule suspended and it was passed. 


Safety Service Director Cindy Murry reminded everyone that there is a scheduled water shut off for Wednesday at 7 P.M. to Thursday at 6 A.M. This was being done to replace three valves and other small projects. A boil water advisory will follow this water shut off but according to Safety Service Director Murry this is hoped to be fine final water shut off. 


Following that reminder Law Director John Schwemer urged the public to exercise patience, the city is making progress and with this the city should consider saving more money for infrastructure in the future. 


Mayor Lynn Webb also asked the community to be aware of city workers around the downtown area as there will be work taking place in the following days. 


On Thursday January 30th at 2 P.M. then again at 6 P.M. the Hardin County Emergency Management Association will be holding a meeting at the Hardin County Courthouse. 


The next Parks and Recreation committee meeting will be held on January 27th at 4:30 P.M. in the 555 building.


The next Finance Committee meeting will be held on January 27th at 5:30 P.M.

The next meeting of the Kenton City Council will be held on Monday January 27th at 7 P.M.
