COLUMBIA CITY â€“ One thing was crystal clear at the Whitley County Plan Commission meeting held Wednesday: The â€śpro-windâ€ť and â€śanti-windâ€ť groups are still miles apart.
Specifically, 5,000 feet apart.
The steering committee formed to fact-find submitted its report to the commission; both sides of the issue are represented and were given the opportunity to speak on its respective group's behalf.
One thing agreed upon was that an ordinance â€“ one way or another in regards to wind farming â€“ is a necessary thing.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Though he wonâ€™t be taking office until 2012, mayor-elect Ryan Daniel has been and will continue to be a busy man heading into office.
Daniel will be participating in workshops for newly elected officials, set up by the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns.
The workshops are available to prepare both new and incumbent mayors for their upcoming four-year term, according to Daniel.
The workshops cover everything from municipal law, leadership qualities and as Daniel put it, â€śreally just everything under the sun that will help a new mayor.â€ť
