COLUMBIA CITY â€” A bridge in Columbia City could one day have a new name.
State Sen. Jim Banks proposed legislation to name the Ind. 9 bridge in Columbia City between West Spencer and Hanna Streets after former State Sen. Gary P. Dillon.
â€śI introduced the legislation a couple of years ago and introduced it again this time,â€ť Banks said.
Banks did not anticipate the legislation passing this year, but said it had to get started on the process.
â€śI would love to surprise him with it,â€ť Banks said of Dillon.
Dillon was elected to the House of Representatives in 1998 and served a total of 12 years in the Indiana General Assembly.
