The Batesville City Council will address a busy agenda when they meet in regular session on Tuesday, July 31.
Under unfinished business, the aldermen will hear the third and final reading of an ordinance to refer to the voters which will increase terms of city council members from two years to four years.
Under new business, council members will make a presentation to Dr. Chris Beller who is moving out of the Ward he represents in the city and has therefore resigned from the council and city committees he serves on.
The council will also consider a resolution to finance the purchase of new residential garbage cans as the city moved to a more mechanical and automated way to pick up trash.
Aldermen will also consider an ordinance to limit the operating hours for bars, nightclubs, and private clubs.
Independence County Judge Robert Griffin will also come before the council to discuss recycling. And aldermen have scheduled an executive session. That session is often used to consider resignations or additions to city committees and boards.
The Batesville City Council meets next Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. in the Municipal Building at 500 East Main in downtown Batesville.
