Approval and signing of the annual inter local agreement with Kosciusko County highlighted the Tuesday evening meeting of the North Webster Town Council at the North Webster Community Center. The agreement continues cooperation in reporting data on police activity and other services.
After input from several citizens, the town is looking into what is involved in putting in a sidewalk that would connect the post office to an existing sidewalk. Because it would be placed in the state highway right of way, an engineering report and design would be required by the Indiana Department of Transportation before application could be made.
Another similar project involving state right of way was mentioned. That would be curbing at the American Legion Post 253. The council instructed Severn Trent Utilities Manager Mike Noe to investigate the costs of engineering services for both projects. Noe reported a new truck would arrive Wednesday.
Police Chief Greg Church explained the department made 170 calls of service during October. Agency and citizen assists and traffic related calls led the list. Officers served 598.5 hours, drove 3,354 miles using 269.6 gallons of fuel.
In attendance besides Noe and Church were council members Jon Stroufe, Lisa Stombeck and Tim Hine, attorney Jack Birch and clerk-treasurer Betsy Luce. The next meeting of the council will be 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 16, at the North Webster Community Center’s party room, 301 N. Main St.
