Henderson Seal 01 300HENDERSON, Ky. (12/12/17) — Natural gas rates will not go up after Henderson City Commission voted 2-3 rejecting the 2 percent increase to reflect the consumer price index.

Commissioners Robert Pruitt, Patti Bugg and Brad Staton voted against the ordinance at a meeting held tonight.

Public way improvements were approved for the Bent Creek Subdivision (water and sewer lines), Wildcat Crossing on North Elm Street (sidewalks) and Best One Tire on Garden Mile Road (sidewalks).

In other business, the commission:

• Passed on second reading an ordinance amending chapter 22 in traffic and motor vehicles as it relates to downtown parking. The ordinance extends the time to pay a fine.
• Approved first reading on the ordinance defining sign regulations in the Gateway and HIP Districts. The ordinance sets the size of monument-style signs in the districts.
• Passed on first reading the ordinance regulating nuisances. This is part of the ongoing updating of the code of ordinances and refines the definition of “clutter.”
• Passed a resolution authorizing extension of sewer services outside city limits to the 400 block of Old Corydon Road. The commission also voted to send a request for annexation to the City-County Planning Commission.
• Awarded a bid for the construction of a pergola at the planned Second Street Pocket Park to M. Bowling Inc. of Henderson in the amount of $37,374. The commission also heard an update on a timeline for the park. Ground could be broken for in late February.
• Heard a recommendation from City Manager Russell Sights about the procedure for selecting a new police chief.

A called meeting is set for 1 p.m. Dec. 15 in the third-floor Assembly Room.
