The Holton Town Council addressed the need to replace missing street signs at the regular November meeting. According to council president Paul Hughes, there are four street signs and one railroad sign that need to be replaced.

In addition, the town will address two street lights that have burned out. The motion to purchase the needed signs was unanimously approved.

Mark Salyers, sewer employee, reported a unit at the sewer pond needed repairs. According to Salyers, the repairs would cost about $15,000. The council decided against the repairs at this time upon the advice of Salyers.

The sewer budget hearing was scheduled for November 30. Appropriation changes for the regular budget were also to be discussed at this meeting.

Work for the sidewalk project at the town park will begin in the spring, according to Hughes. Wilbur Myers reminded the board that the park will be closed starting December 1. Myers also reported that repairs to the sandbox and the water fountain are needed.

The town nuisance ordinance was read due to complaints on some properties. According to Hughes, the property owners will be contacted and given the opportunity to clean up the property before legal proceedings are filed.
All board members were in attendance. The next meeting will be held on Thursday, December 10 beginning at 7 p.m. at the Holton Community Center.
