Council

The Odon Town Council acts as the legislative branch of our government, as well as its policy-making body. The Council looks to the town's goals, major projects and infrastructure improvements ranging from community growth to land use to finances and strategic planning. The Council's goal is to do the very best to represent the needs of the town as a whole.

Towns are governed by the town council, which exercises the legislative function of the town, and in many towns, acts as the de facto town executive, although by statutory definition, the town council president is the town executive (IC 36-5-2-9 and 36-1-2-5(4)). The general powers of the council are governed by state laws, the methods through which the powers are excerised are left largely to the council to adopt by ordinance.The Town of Odon currently has three member which is determined by IC 36-5-2-4.2 and 36-5-1-10.1. Current members are Chuck Krieg (elected), Carol Kryder (appointed), and Vernon Graber (appointed). Also, the  Odon Town Council Members are currently elected at large (IC 36-5-2-4.1). There is no limitations of number of terms a town council member may serve. 

The salaries of council members are set by ordinance, as are all salaries and wages of town officials and employees (IC 36-5-3-2). Currently, the council member's pay is $2421.26/yearly while the council president's pay is $2672.17/yearly. The salary is the same regardless the number of meetings attended. Council members must reside in the town and forfeit their office if town residency is not maintained.  

The Odon Town Council would like to encourage you to come and observe the business of your town by attending it's meetings. If you have a question or concern that you wish to be heard, please feel free to contact the clerk to be placed on the agenda. Your questions/concerns are important to us.The Council meetings are held at 109 South Spring Street on the 3rd Monday of the month beginning at 6:00pm unless posted otherwise. These postings are also found on the Meeting Agenda and Minutes Page.
