Bluffton council creates 21-page ordinance spelling out its operating rules

On Monday Bluffton council will act on the second of three readings of a 21-page ordinance that clearly spells out the self-governing rules of that body.

It is the most comprehensive and detailed ordinance in recent memory – perhaps the first-ever - that covers in such detail the rules and job description of council members.

New flooring installed in third floor of town hall late September-early October

A new floor is coming to the third floor of the Bluffton town hall.

As a result of the spring water damage that occurred to the town hall a new floor overlay is required. The village has reserved the last week in September through the first week in October for Diller Flooring to install the new floor, according to Jamie Mehaffie, village administrator.

“They are updating their previous estimate to include the installation of a sound dampening membrane under the proposed tile floor to reduce the noise infiltration on the second floor,” said Mehaffie.
