The Chesterton Town Council held a six-minute meeting on Monday.

All members were present, either in person or via teleconference.

The first order of business was to approve claims. Members did so by unanimous vote.

The council then convened a public hearing on the annual re-establishment of Cumulative Capital Development, a fund with a dedicated property-tax rate of $0.04 per $100 of assessed valution used exclusively for the acquisition of emergency vehicles.

No members of the public were in attendance, Town Attorney Chuck Lukmann noted. But he emphasized, "The public was not banned from this meeting. This is an open meeting. But it also shows that people are heeding the directives of the state and federal government.”

The council opened and closed the public hearing, accordingly, then voted unanimously to adopt the resolution re-establishing the CCD.

That business completed, Member Lloyd Kittredge, R-2nd, urged “everybody to heed federal and local governments on what we need to do to keep everybody healthy and safe at this time. Please follow the best you can. And I wish everybody to stay safe and keep doing what we're doing.”

Member Jennifer Fisher, I-5th, concurred with Kittredge. “I think complying with the executive orders and restrictions we have is very important,” she said. “We are in a crazy time. I'm promoting that and I wish everyone to stay well and safe.”
