COLUMBIA CITY â The head of Whitley Countyâs Geographic Information System (GIS) Department is constantly trying to stay one step ahead of advancing technology in order to make his office a vital tool for the entire county.
GIS Coordinator Dan Weigold briefed the Whitley County Board of Commissioners last week about the variety of roles his department plays throughout the county.
âThe state is looking at doing another flyover,â said Weigold, who explained that GIS departments use aerial photography on a daily basis.
COLUMBIA CITY â A special meeting has been scheduled for the Whitley County Consolidated School Corporationâs Board of School Trustees in order to possibly ratify an agreement with the local teachers union.
âWeâve been working on contract negotiations and we reached settlement, we hope,â said Corporation Superintendent Dr. Patricia OâConnor today.
âWe set (the meeting) up in order for the board to ratify the agreement.â
OâConnor said the teachers are expected to approve the agreement today, leaving only the school board signatures remaining.
