2020 Lawrenceburg City Council Approvals

The 2020 Budget was passed.


Update published Friday, November 8 at 1:16 p.m.:

Due to the 2020 Salary not receiving a unanimous vote on October 21, the Salary was tabled until the meeting on Thursday, November 7.

On Thursday, November 7, the motion to push the Salary forward did not see a 2nd. This will ensure that the 2020 Salary Ordinance will be seen again at the November 18 meeting on Monday.

There were no questions or concerns. 

The Salary Ordinance will include union and non-union city employees.

The Budget Adoption Meeting was opened at 7:03 PM. 

Projects like Levee Enhancements were discussed during the Council Meeting and already placed in the upcoming budget. The project alone has a budget of $350,000.

The Dearborn County Trail has brought a lot of activity to the levee. Enhancements were discussed to update the areas by Ivy Tech and Double Tree to provide green space, shade, and seating.
