The Columbia City Park Board held its monthly meeting Monday with Park Director Mark Green providing several updates.
The future of Burnworth Pool was the topic of considerable discussion.
A pool committee has been organized to determine a proposed objective and/or assignment for the future of the facility. A survey was conducted by the committee which resulted in numerous recommendations.
A fight against a proposed rate increase at the Tri-Lakes Sewer District has gone to the next level.
A petition was filed this week in Whitley Circuit Court which requested the court review the past proceedings involved with the rate increase and dismiss the sewer rate ordinance passed by the sewer district’s board in June.
Included in the petition is also a request to dismiss the vote by the two-person sewer district authority board, which held a hearing in mid-August about the proposed rate increase.
