New Business

Judy Moran, Edgewood Intermediate School Teacher – She has been working with the Sycamore Land Trust on making three signs for the Well Site.  One sign will be with a photograph of the children, another sign will be a map of the trail and the third sign will be a narrative about the park.  The Sycamore Land Trust is making the signs and they will be made of metal.  Jim Ragle of the Street Department is in favor of the signs and will put them up.  They are requesting the name of the park be changed to “Ellettsville Well’s Park” instead of “Wishing Well Site.”  At one time Darlene Sowders had a contest to name the park.  There was only one name sent in and that was “Wishing Well Site.”  Jimmie Durnil replied they will take the request for a name change to the Town Council.


Jimmie Durnil made a motion to change the name of the park to “Ellettsville Well’s Park”.   Phil Rogers seconded.  Motion carried 3-0.




Jimmie Durnil seeing no other business on the agenda and no public comment asked for a motion to adjourn. Phillip Rogers made a motion to adjourn and Geraldine McIntyre seconded.  Motion carried 3-0.  The meeting was adjourned.
