Jaeckel introduced Mike Moran. Moran is Jaeckel’s pick as a guest Council Member for the month of January. Moran moved to Corydon last year and has expressed an interest in City government and issues at previous meetings.

Sharon Anderson addressed the Council in regards to the costs associated with renting roll-offs from Midwest Sanitation vs. C & E Trucking.

Anderson will receive a call by Wednesday morning in regards to the debris from her business.
