Recent Meeting Notes

Notes from the council meeting on 5-19-2022


Council learned Capital Hill Cemetery will continue to be closed to cars, UTV's and Golf Carts as the group is still trying to pick up the pieces of monument markers from the vandalism that happened a couple months ago.  Public Works Superintendent Ken Risch is getting prices on installing a fence at the entrance into the cemetery and will also contact Duke to install a light pole so security cameras can be placed at the entrance as well. The investigation is still ongoing!


A public hearing will be conducted at the June council meeting to raise the Riverside Cemetery rates from $300.00 to $450.00. Currently, Cambridge City is the lowest in the county for cemetery lots.


Also, a public hearing will be conducted for the trash increase over the next five years with RUMPKE. Currently, the Cambridge City customers pay a trash fee of $14.95. The rates will increase every year on April 1 to the following:


April 1, 2022 - March 31, 2023: Increase to $15.37 per unit per month

April 1, 2023 - March 31, 2024: Increase to $15.80 per unit per month

Approval to amend the 2022 Salary Ordinance approving part-time laborers to be paid up to $12.00 per hour.


Fire Chief Gabbard would like ALL vehicles moved off the south side of the hill after the fireworks, July 2 due to the Car Show being July 3. The car show is growing larger every year and the space is needed for vehicles. Gabbard also received approval to close Parkway Drive from the fire station property line to Green Street for the car show. 


Public Works Superintendent Ken Risch received approval to hire Joe Webb as a full time employee at $16.00 per hour. Weeding eating has begun at the cemetery and Risch also advised potholes will be filled this week. A pre-construction meeting was held last week with Culy Contracing for the upcoming Community Crossings road project.


Town Attorney Bob Bever presented to council new procedures addressing blighted properties. A complaint form will be available for any one to fill out regarding any blighted properties, abandoned vehicles, tall grass/weeds, etc. A committee of Debbie McGinley, Jim McLane, Ken Risch and Bob Bever will meet to discuss fees for the above blight. More information will be available at the June meeting.
