Additionally, operating hours of the Tippecanoe Family Aquatic Center have been cut back by one hour, with the center closing at 7 p.m. According to City Manager Tim Eggleston, the change in operating hours is a result of several factors, including wage increases for lifeguards and the increase in cost of chemicals to maintain the pool.

“Unless somebody has paid the full cost to have it open longer, such as a party; they would pay the full cost of the lifeguards, the managers, those types of things,” Eggleston said.

Council also unanimously approved a resolution modifying the district parameters of the approved Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area (DORA) in Downtown Tipp City to include the East side of 2nd Street to Dow Street. The modifications came after business owners from East 2nd Street came before council at the Jan. 18 council meeting. Those who spoke included Nicolette Winner, owner of Unboxed Boutique; Sarah Zimmerman, co-owner of Bloom More Botannicals; Debbie Downgen, who owns the building Unboxed Boutique is in and is the owner of Broadway Hair Studio & Co.; and Downtown Tipp City Partnership Executive Director Kim Bulgin.

Council also unanimously approved the following at Monday’s meeting:

• A resolution authorizing an employer contribution to employee Health Savings Accounts;

• A resolution declaring a 2014 Road Rescue E-40 ambulance owned by the City of Tipp City to be surplus property and no longer useful in the general operation of the City;

• A motion approving Tipp City Council’s 2022—2024 Strategic Plan; and,

• A motion approving an F2 Liquor permit for the Rotary’s 100th anniversary, hosted by the Downtown Tipp City Partnership.
