CHURCH GROWTH: Years later, church advances on building project

September 3, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — After nearly 10 years of raising funds, St. Paul of the Cross Catholic Church, in Columbia City, is able to move forward on its building project that began in 2005.

The church is looking to develop the empty lot to the north of its current building, located at 315 S. Line Street.

The community center will contain a gymnasium, food pantry and full kitchen, and the pricetag has dropped since the initial fund drive in 2005.

The initial estimated cost was $1.1 million, and Father Gary Sigler said he recently worked with contractors to help lower the price to $989,000.

FIBER NETWORK: City to consider providing public WiFi

September 3, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Internal needs of the city could result in an exciting feature for Columbia City residents.

The city is working to install a fiber network to help provide more fluid communications between its buildings — City Hall, the Municipal Service Facility, Wastewater Facility, Water Treatment Plant and Parks Department (Morsches Park).

Putting in a fiber network also give officials the option of providing public wireless internet, WiFi, in the downtown area and parks.

Communications Director Terry Wherry said the public WiFi could cover three blocks of the downtown area.
