RSD approves ordinance that allows for rate amendments

The Harrison County Regional Sewer District had a public hearing Friday to discuss a proposed ordinance that would allow the board to amend customers’ rates when utility service providers adjust the rates they charge the RSD.

During the monthly board meeting that followed the hearing, board members unanimously voted to approve the ordinance.

For the new year, reappointments to the board were made. There were no new appointments announced by this newspaper’s deadline.

RSD bylaws dictate that there be one voting member between towns with representatives on the board (Corydon, Milltown and Lanesville). The town with a voting member rotates annually. For 2019, Corydon’s representative has been the voting member. In 2020, the Milltown representative will vote.

Members starting Jan. 1 will include Darin Duncan, Tom Tucker and Charlie Crawford, all appointed by the Harrison County Board of Commissioners; Gary Davis and Daniel Lee, both appointed by the Harrison County Council; Tony Combs, appointed by the Harrison County Board of Health; Bill Byrd, appointed by the Town of Milltown; and Matt Beckman, appointed by the Town of Lanesville.

The Corydon Town Council had not made an appointment by this newspaper’s deadline, which was Monday due to early deadlines because of Christmas. John D. Kintner was Corydon’s representative in 2019.
