COLUMBIA CITY â€” The head of Whitley Countyâ€™s 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.
â€śThe state is looking at doing another flyover,â€ť 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 Corporationâ€™s Board of School Trustees in order to possibly ratify an agreement with the local teachers union.
â€śWeâ€™ve been working on contract negotiations and we reached settlement, we hope,â€ť said Corporation Superintendent Dr. Patricia Oâ€™Connor today.
â€śWe set (the meeting) up in order for the board to ratify the agreement.â€ť
Oâ€™Connor said the teachers are expected to approve the agreement today, leaving only the school board signatures remaining.
