The Culver Town Council met Tuesday evening, May 23rd with four members present, Sally Ricciardi absent. 

Members conducted a public hearing on an ordinance to set a rate of $3 per hour at the electric vehicle charging station.  Currently, the first 2-hours are free through October 31, 2024.  The 2-hours of free charging is a requirement of the grant funds used to help purchase the charging station.   

With no comments during the public hearing, the Culver Town Council suspended the rules and passed the ordinance to set the electric vehicle charging station fees on all three readings.

The Culver Town Council also granted the Culver School Corporation the ability to post items to the town’s electronic sign that sits on their property. 

Clerk-Treasurer Karen Heim said the council created and approved a policy.  Currently, if someone wants to have an event posted on the sign they must determine if it meets the town’s requirements and then the clerk-treasurer or town manager gives the final approval.   

The motion was made by Rich West and seconded by Bill Githens to give the Culver Community School Corporation access to post events on the town’s electronic sign following the policy guidelines.  The motion was approved by a 4-0 vote. 

The Culver Town Council also approved the Special Event Permit for the annual golf cart poker run on Saturday, August 12th.   

Chief Wayne Beam said the event has been held for the past 6 years without incident. He also said all city departments have reviewed the request and signed off on it. 

The Poker Run is sponsored by the Good Neighbors of Culver and is a fundraiser for the Culver Youth Club.
