Township Officially Closes On Building Sale
By Keith Knepp
NORTH WEBSTER — Tippecanoe Township Trustee Chris Francis informed the township board that the sale of the township’s building, 102 S. Morton St., has officially been sold to North Webster Church of God.
Closing on the building’s sale took place earlier Tuesday. According to Francis, the church plans to expand its Turning Point Counseling services. Francis plans to have the township moved out of the building by next Friday and into its new space at the North Webster Community Center by the end of the month.
Francis advised the board of estimated costs to install previously discussed paved drives at North Webster Cemetery. He said the cost to pave the south drive only was $17,250, while the cost to do the entire project as planned was $39,600.
He recommended approval of the higher amount using unspent money from last year’s “rainy day fund” and money from this year’s budget. The recommendation was unanimously approved by the board.
Francis also noted he has been doing repairs at Mock Cemetery, including pothole and signage repairs.
In other business, Deb Minear was officially approved to serve a second term on the North Webster Community Public Library’s board of trustees as the township’s appointee. This will be her second term in that role.
