Bourbon FireA proposed amendment to the Bourbon Golf Cart Ordinance was passed on first reading Tuesday evening. The amendment would increase the cost of registering golf carts from $10 to $20. It was noted that the increase would be used to cover the cost of printing stickers for the carts.

The council accepted a letter of retirement from Bill Keyser, Zoning / Code Enforcement; approved the   appointment of Anna Gilsinger to the BZA and Kim Berger to the County Unsafe Building Committee.

The Town of Bourbon will soon have a new sign to post county-wide events as well as emergency information. The LED signs are being erected in every town in the county at no charge and will be paid for by a COVID grant. The towns will be responsible for the payment of electricity services.

The Council voted 3-0 to deny a request by Omnisource to waive stormwater fees.   The business is moving out of Bourbon. The waiver request was presented as indefinite and council members objected to the lack of a date. Byers said the town depends on the fees to service the stormwater lines.

Drawing of proposed changes to the park’s basketball courts and the addition of pickle ball courts are available at the Bourbon Clerk’s office for public viewing. The council indicated that the drawings and associated needs will help them determine the overall cost for the project.
