3. Treasurers Report / Budget Discussion
Burks-Craig reviewed entire 2022 income/expenses within Motor Vehicle Highway, Local Roads
and Streets….within LRS, expenses nearly doubled from 2021. Lights in South Wynnedale are
costing nearly 3-4 times greater than the cost per light in North Wynnedale. 14 lights in SW is
$214 and NW was $93….this in ’21 was closer to $170/mo total and now its been around
$320/mo. Burks-Craig is going to inquire and Sue Rice reminded everyone that we buy our own
lightbulbs so why is it so expensive. General Acct was similar to 2021 regarding
income/expenses with the exception of Covid Local Fiscal income of $56,097.55 in 2022. This
$56k is currently unallocated towards the budget but we have to spend before 2026. Currently
in our bank account is $153,386.87 (money market). We also have $56,097.55 in our checking
account plus roughly $8k. The approx. $8k is what is used to cover expenses and this the
balance that is receiving income from the state where as the Money Market is receiving income
from the city. Burks-Craig is still working towards changing bank relationship. AH reiterated the
importance of working towards getting a greater yield on the money knowing that there are
some money market, savings or even US Treasuries paying greater than 4%. Burks-Craig
indicated still waiting on info from IRS in order to have what’s needed to move to a new bank.
4. Old Business
Reiterating that the snow plow contractor may need reminded that they can’t plow until there
are 3” on the ground. Sue indicated she would like to find someone in the future who would
plow only at 4” minimum. Discussed what authority Council may have for situations for
unsightly vehicles in the yard and the struggle is to what actual enforcement we may have. It
was determined it’s likely our best bet to ask politely.
Jarnell was going to connect with Bruce regarding the domain name that our website could
adopt through indy.gov.
5. New Business
