The Ferdinand Town Council met last night for their monthly meeting and talked about some changes that will have an impact on the community.
One hot topic discussed last night was changes made to the town’s vacation-holiday policy.
President of the Town Council, Ken Sicard, gives us a better look.
Sicard says it took a while to make this decision. In the past few meetings, council members went back and forth, trying to figure out how to best balance the policy.
There was also talk about a new business coming to Ferdinand.
Keith Fritz, the son of a carpenter raised in Siberia, Indiana, recently purchased the building at 1245 Main Street.
Fritz hopes to restore the building to its natural facade, and use it for his furniture company. But he will need some help from the town for the restoring process.
Sicard explains how the council can help.
Parks and Recreation Department also updated the council on the Old Town Lake project and reiterated that the lake is closed to the public until further notice.
Towards the end of the meeting, the council announced a new electric rate study.
We will keep you updated if anything changes. The next scheduled meeting is at the Town Hall on Tuesday, August 20th, at 7:30 pm.
