COLUMBIA CITY — The second forum regarding the future of Burnworth Memorial Pool will be held Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Peabody Public Library, 1160 E. Ind. 205 in Columbia City.
Concerns about the condition of the pool prompted the first forum, held Aug. 22, where members of the community who attended the meeting shared opinions to members of the city’s park board as well as Mayor Ryan Daniel.
With pool attendance slowly dwindling, the public discussed the pros and cons of several different options, keeping aquatics at the center point for the future of the city.

ELECTRIC LIGHT PROJECT: County council gives OK

September 7, 2012


COLUMBIA CITY — The Whitley County Council approved $22,911 for an electric light project at Columbia City’s courthouse and annex building at its meeting Wednesday.
“It’s something we’re going to have to do soon,” said Mark Sturtevant with the courthouse’s maintenance department.
“The only advantage of trying to do it yet this year is to get the rebates.”
Sturtevant said if the council did not move the project forward now, it would have to take place the next year, and the rebates would no longer be offered.
“We’ll be forced to do it then,” said Sturtevant.
