At a recent council meeting, the final reading of a business license ordinance was accepted by members. The first reading of the backflow prevention ordinance revision was held, and revisions to the employee handbook and a solicitation ordinance were discussed.
In addition, Casto said revisions are currently being undertaken on the water department policies.
In other action, the council:

Heard from Debbie Gerlach on behalf of the Community Association of Middleport, who thanked the town for assisting in the funding of the Fourth of July fireworks display; and,
Approved the bills for payment and minutes of the previous meeting, as well as a special meeting.
Attending were Mayor Donna Dennis, and council members Ray Varian, Ron Heath, Marty Yeager, Emily Henry, and Becky Pearson.
Also, as previously reported, Town of Mason has set the date for its annual Harvest Festival as Saturday, Oct. 17, at the Stewart-Johnson V.F.W./Lottie Jenks Memorial Park. Although there are few details at this time, the New Haven Road Angels have already announced a car and bike show.
