Members of the Nappanee Board of Public Works and Safety voted May 9 to restrict parking inside the lot located west of the Nappanee Center, 302 W. Market St.
Signs reading No Parking 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. will be posted at the site. This new restriction will be in effect seven days a week on a permanent basis.
Eliminating the parking during these hours will ensure the cityâ€™s street department access to the lot for seasonal sweeping and snow plowing. Nappanee Police Department will monitor the lot during these hours and issue tickets to violators.
Seek energy grant
The board also approved Gale Gerber, Water and Waste Water superintendent, to pursue a Community Energy Planning Grant through the Indiana Office of Energy Development. If the city receives the estimated $18,000 grant it will cover all costs involved with doing an energy audit to determine potential cost-cutting areas that would benefit the city of Nappanee.
Approve cost additions
Two change orders were approved regarding the needed work on the U.S. 6 East Water Main Replacement Project.
â€˘ Change Order #5 brought an additional cost of $7,014.10.
â€˘ Change Order #6 resulted in an additional $7,145.
In both cases the work was needed to address issues related to the approved project.
