Holyrood plans public meeting on proposed fire district

POSTED: February 23, 2014 9:29 a.m.

The Holyrood City Council agreed at its Monday night meeting to accept a donation from Rails to Trails of property at 107 N. Pennsylvania. As part of the agreement, the organization must provide the city with an updated survey and clear title.
Mayor Ken Schepmann said one building on the property could be used with a little repair and the other demolished for between $2,500-$3,000.
In other business, council members decided to ask Valley and Palacky townships about splitting city attorney Carey Hipp’s legal fees for work on a proposed fire district.
The council also approved an increase in court fees from $75 to $95. Neysa Brown, city clerk, and police chief Pat Chapman said the increase would be more in line with nearby communities.
The council went into executive session to discuss employee reviews.
The next meeting of the Holyrood City Council will be at 6:30 p.m. Monday Feb. 17, at the Holyrood Fire Station. The council wants to get public input on the proposed fire district. The council plans to make a final decision at 6:30 p.m. Monday, March 3, at city hall.
Jan. 21 council meeting
• Council members discussed the proposed fire district and planned to have representatives from the group attend the Feb. 10 meeting, which was postponed by snow. Hipp was at the meeting to explain the legal nuances of the proposal to the council.
• Schepmann informed the council that Rails for Trails was willing to give the property at 107 N. Pennsylvania to the city. Rails for Trail also proposed giving the city a three mile stretch of the abandoned railroad right-of-way that runs through town.
