BOURBON – Bourbon council members officially entered into a contract during its meeting Tuesday with Anthony Wagner to serve as the town’s attorney.

Wagner, of Wagner & Wagner LLC, has served in that capacity since February 2018 following the passing of his father, Mark Wagner, who had been the town’s attorney for many years.

The contract calls for a retainer of $3,600 paid in monthly installments for attending town council meetings, taking minutes and other services. Services rendered for collections allow a percentage for the attorney and fees of $100 per hour for services requiring litigation. Additionally, there are fees associated with administration of other services, including but not limited to the sale of bonds and drafting of ordinances.

In other matters, the council discussed updating the junk vehicle ordinance. No action was taken during the meeting. Wagner is expected to present any revisions during the March council meeting.

The council will place a legal ad in local newspapers this month to seek a contractor for the mowing of the town’s parks.

Steve Stacy, water/wastewater superintendent, reported that a new main lift station pump had been purchased and would be arriving during the week following the council meeting. Once the pump is delivered, installation will begin.

The council meets on the second Tuesday of each month and meetings are open to the public.
