During the Monday night meeting, the Leitchfield City Council received a request Webelo Scout Gabe Nunnally, who represented the local Boy Scout Troop 135, along with Pack 135, asking the Council to use one of the city’s Beville Park to have a camp out in September. Nunnally, the scouts “will do a park clean-up in appreciation for your generosity.” And thanked the Council for their time. The Council unanimously agreed to allow the Scouts to use the park.
In the second order of business, the council was presented with a certificate of appreciation from Boy Scouts Jacob Smith and Chandler Mudd for all they do for the scouts.
In other business:

• The Second and Final Reading of Amended Utility Bond Ordinance, which states that bonds issued in 1995 can now be re-financed by the city at a considerably lower rate saving the city approximately $300,000.00over the period of the bond.
• Leitchfield Aquatic Center Director, Sabrina Durbin gave a report to the Council on the fall schedule for the Aquatic Center. Durbin said she would like to keep the center open as long as the weather cooperates. Those hours will be: Open to the Public, Friday 4pm - 8 pm, Saturday 10:30am - 8pm and Sunday 1pm -6pm; Lap Lane / Water Walking 1pm - 8pm, Monday, Wednesday & Friday; Swim Lessons 5:30 pm - 6:15pm Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday; Twin Lake’s Therapy 1:30pm - 5:30 pm Tuesday & Thursday. Durbin also stated that she would like to have an end of year party. Maybe a puppy paddle similar to what has been done at other centers. This would allow owners to bring their pets for a swim just before the water is drained for the year.
