WINONA LAKE — The town council approved a cost-sharing agreement for new equipment in the Winona Lake Police Department’s interview room.
According to Winona Lake Police Chief Joe Hawn, the equipment currently used for the interview room is no longer operational.
Hawn said he has been in contact with the Kosciusko County prosecutor’s office regarding the matter. The equipment often aids the prosecutor’s office by recording interviews from within the room.
The county prosecutor’s office will provide half of the funds for the cost of the new equipment from iReport, according to Hawn. iReport is a self-reporting software commonly used by many police departments across the nation.
The council agreed to share in the cost of the new equipment with the prosecutor’s office. The police department will pay $6,019.50 toward the cost of the equipment.
The council also approved a right of way contract with the Indiana Department of Transportation for the roundabout at Argonne Road, Winona Avenue, Kings Highway and Park Avenue. The agreement will be paid through the 80/20 grant funds. The contract allows INDOT to aid in the right of way acquisition process for the roundabout, according to Town Manager Craig Allebach.
