Council members for the city of Blue Mound met on Monday, April 3, for their regular monthly meeting. With Mayor Russell Beth absent, councilman Donnie Rhynerson presided over the meeting as council president. City clerk Max Krull swore in new councilwoman Marri Krupco at the start of the meeting.

Krull informed the council of the county’s offer for a sidewalk grant. He explained the county would grant a third of the cost of sidewalks up to $2,500 (with the city paying one third and homeowners whose property the sidewalk would cross paying the other third). Council discussed if they were to do a sidewalk project, where would they place it. One possibility would be to connect the two parks in town. 

However, council also discussed the realization that only a very select few citizens would be able to benefit from this project, and how could the city decide who should get it, etc. In the end, no action was taken for this grant.

Krull next presented to council the solar panel plan presented by KMEA. He explained how the panels would hook into the existing power grid, and how usage would be determined. The council was informed that they would need to pass an ordinance on this plan. Council members then voted and approved the adoption of said plan.

Council briefly discussed an upcoming zoning meeting to be held at Prairie View High School on April 27 at 7 p.m.  

The council discussed a shelter house at the lake. There is money for the shelter, but not enough for concrete. The shelter would be placed near the catwalk, and the city would need to put rock down for parking. Those present also discussed the current road and street conditions within the city, and plans to repair them.

In other business, the council approved the following: minutes of the previous meeting and payment of bills in the amount of $24,928.28.
