The Burns Harbor Town Council will meet tonight at 7 p.m. inside the Town Hall, 1240 N. Boo Rd.

The agenda mentions there will be a presentation by Westchester Twp. History Museum Curator Serena Sutliff on the historic marker for the original state boundary line that runs through the town limits.

The Council will consider adopting an ordinance for funds to hold the matching grant received from the state for local roads and bridges. A resolution will be considered to transfer unused appropriations into rainy day funds.

Mitchell Day, senior account director for Praxair Inc., will speak to the Council.

In new business, the Council will discuss and possibly vote on a purchase agreement for 25.6 acres near the corner of Ind. 149 on Haglund Rd. owned by the Duneland School Corporation. The School Board voted 5-0 Monday in approval of the purchase agreement to sell the land to the Town at a price of $242,500 over the course of three years. The land is eyed to become part of the new downtown areas.

Also, staff anniversaries will be recognized and the date for 2017 Shared Ethics Advisory Commission Summit will be announced.

In old business, the Council will address bids for the paving project using the money received from the state’s road grants.

There will be reports by the Clerk-Treasurer, Town Attorney, department heads and representatives from the park board and the redevelopment commission. Correspondence includes Andy Bozak’s resignation from the Town’s Redevelopment Commission and Crystal Westphal’s resignation from the Advisory Plan Commission.

The public may speak during the Good of the Order of the Community.
