GIS details residential boundaries for sex offenders

January 21, 2011

COLUMBIA CITY — The County’s Geographic Information System office in Columbia City is adding a feature designed to eliminate any doubt about where certain convicted felons can live.
Dan Weigold of the Whitley County GIS office made a report this week to the Whitley County Board of Commissioners about the latest feature in online information.
“Whitley County GIS Department has developed a new layer for its website,” said Weigold. “It’s called the offender layer.”
County Attorney Dan Sigler joined the discussion to add additional explanation.

January 21, 2011

COLUMBIA CITY — Residents who want to pick up firewood from the city will be expected to sign a statement releasing Columbia City from liability if that wood happens to be ash.
The city’s Board of Works and Safety discussed the town’s ongoing ash removal project at its regular meeting Friday morning.
The city has begun a plan to cut down more than 200 ash trees around the city at a pace of about 50 trees per year.
The resulting work will produce firewood and city officials have agreed to make it available to city residents free of charge — with at least one condition.

Whitley County 4-H Inc. board met Tuesday evening, a week late due to last week’s snows, and were just able to get a quorum as the eighth board member arrived at 7:05 p.m.
Board president Bill Leeuw, handing out the new 2011 director assignments, stressed the need to get more people involved.
“I want to see committees,” Leeuw said. “This is a year round event ...we’re (the board members) killing ourselves.”
A call for volunteers was made again, asking for help not only in the concessions but in other ways. Anyone interested may contact a board member or the Extension Office at 244-7615.
