 Hodgenville City Council held a brief meeting Monday, taking care of a few items before the holidays.

• The council concurred with Land of Lincoln Planning and Zoning’s recommendation to approve the rezoning of a lot on West Main Street, Hodgenville. The property was purchased by LaRue County Conservation District for the purpose of constructing a storage building for grain drills and office.

• Police Chief Steve Johnson advised residents to lock their cars and not leave valuables inside. Several vehicles have been broken into, he said.

• Hodgenville Mayor Terry Cruse said the water tower project is on schedule.

• Mayor Cruse said paving had been completed on Cobb Lane, Saunders Lane and Hill Street. Saunders Lane is the last street in Hodgenville to be blacktopped.

• Mayor Cruse said City Hall would be open at 6 p.m. Saturday for families to visit with Santa. Refreshments will be available.

• Councilman Kenny Devore said some residents are burning leaves on blacktop. He asked if reminders could be sent to “bag, not burn” leaves. City Clerk MaDonna Hornback said the garbage service will pick up 10 bags of leaves from each residence every Friday during the fall.
