New Council 008The New Carlisle City Council voted to appoint Mike Lowrey as the new Mayor. Council member Ethan Reynolds made the motion to nominate Lowrey who was re-elected to council in November.

Council voted five to two to appoint Council Member John Krabacher as Vice Mayor. Council members Ethan Reynolds and William Lindsey voted against the appointment of Krabacher.

Council member Bill McIntire stated that Lowrey was a “good choice” as mayor due to his “work outside of council” related to the city. He noted Lowrey’s work with the pool this past summer, with the Heritage of Flight Committee and the New Years Eve Ball Drop. “I think he will do a great job” said McIntire.

McIntire also spoke about the choice of Krabacher as Vice Mayor saying “he does much for his church” and “he is a guy you can go to for just about anything”.

City Manager Randy Bridge announced that the current gavel will be engraved and presented to outgoing Mayor Lowell McGlothlin with a new gavel ordered for Mr. Lowrey.

Council member Rick Lowrey thanked McGlothlin for his service to the city. “You have done an excellent job for the city” said Lowrey regarding the leadership of McGlothlin over the past four years.

Clerk of Council Gene Collier administered the oath of office to Bill McIntire, William Lindsey, Ethan Reynolds and Mike Lowrey who will serve the council until the end of 2019.

In his report, City Manager Randy Bridge reported that the Marathon station will now be the only location selling trash bags. The cost is $5.25 for a single bag and $26.00 for a bundle. Members of council praised the owner of the gas station for his dedication to the city and the support that he provides to the various community events.

Bridge noted that most citizens are using trash bins for the weekly collection. Ronald Cobb stated during the public address that he has seen a decline in the service provided by the single waste hauler for the city Waste Management and asked when the contract is up for renewal. Bridge stated that he has also received complaints and that the bid will be open this year and the city will be considering options for the services.

Due to the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, the next meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 19 beginning at 7:00 pm at the Smith Park Shelter House.
