Approval of Minutes

Richard Pease made a motion to approve the minutes of November 4, 2013.  Amy Slabaugh seconded.  Motion carried. 


Review of Accounts Payable Expenditures

Jimmie Durnil stated the balance is $38,000. 


Old Business

Jimmie Durnil asked Ms. Slabaugh where they can find park benches.  Mr. Durnil said the ADA guidelines need to be followed.  He would like to purchase four park benches, the same that are located at the park.  He would like to have a sign on them which states “Ellettsville Park Board”.  They would be set out for the Fall Festival and then put back in storage for the year.  Mr. Durnil will call Joe Peden and ask him where to purchase them from.  Jim Ragle, Street Commissioner, doesn’t want any permanent seating at the park. 


New Business

Claudetta Kelly explained the lights on the flags on either end of Town have burned out.  Apparently, the wiring is in the ground and water has corroded it.  Sandra Hash, Clerk-Treasurer, would like to replace the lights with LED lights and replace the electrical boxes in the ground.  Cassady Electric looked at the wiring.


Jimmie Durnil entertained a motion to approve purchasing the lights.  Richard Pease made the motion.  Claudetta Kelly seconded.  Motion carried.


Jimmie Durnil reminded everyone that Santa Claus will be arriving on December 14, 2013, 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.  Ms. Kelly added Eastern Star will be preparing breakfast.


Jimmie Durnil will find out where they can get the park benches made.  Amy Slabaugh may know of someone in Spencer who could make the park benches.  After a discussion it was decided the sign for the benches should say “Provided by Your Ellettsville Parks Board.”



Jimmie Durnil made a motion to adjourn.  Richard Pease seconded.  Motion carried.  The meeting was adjourned at 5:40 p.m.
