COLUMBIA CITY â€” Mayor Ryan Daniel recently announced a new citizen engagement component for Columbia City, making it easy for citizens to stay connected to information concerning the city.
â€śWe are one of the few communities in the state to have something like this,â€ť said Daniel.
â€śRight now the (computer application) is only for the iPhone and iPad, but the Droid may be an option in the future as we see how this pans out.â€ť
According to a press release, the computer application, also known as an â€śapp,â€ť was recently designed by Austin Drummond, a Huntington University student.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” The authority to grant Columbia City residents permission to shoot off fireworks in the city was transferred from one governing body to another this week.
An amendment was passed on second reading concerning the cityâ€™s Fireworks Ordinance at the Columbia City Common Council meeting Tuesday.
Mayor Ryan Daniel said the ordinance had strict standards as to only allowing citizens to use fireworks on specific days in the year.
â€śThis ordinance, first of all allows the Board of Works to set forth any additional dates, like this year when we had the burn ban,â€ť said Daniel.
