The city of Laurie will be looking for a new mayor after its current mayor announces he is not running for re-election. During a discussion about budget numbers at the Wednesday board meeting, Mayor Chuck Chorpening announced he would not be seeking the mayor’s seat.
Also at the Wednesday meeting the city decided to pay $1,200 to investigate responsibility for underground utility work at the Indian Rock Golf Course Subdivision Neighborhood Improvement District. City Attorney Tom Loraine informed the board that there was a portion of the sewer line that was laid incorrectly. The city may have to move the line, change easements, or condemn property in order to fix the problem.
