The North Judson Town Council is scheduled to hold a public hearing for their proposed 2018 Budget when members meet tonight at 6:30 p.m. According to Indiana Gateway, the budget estimate submitted for the general fund is $728,584, while the total estimated budget amounts to $983,546.
The meeting agenda states that council members will discuss the railroad bank account that was established during a meeting in September. At that meeting, they passed an ordinance designating an account where all funds railroad related would go. That includes money set aside for renovations as well as revenue received from the railroad company.
Council members will also hold the first reading over a new ordinance as well as revisit the animal ordinance. At the last meeting, a working document of the animal ordinance was presented by Town Attorney Justin Schramm. The council members have been gathering research to contribute to the ordinance in order to ensure a suitable solution can be made on this matter that has spanned several months.
