COLUMBIA CITY â€” The Whitley County Council approved $22,911 for an electric light project at Columbia Cityâ€™s courthouse and annex building at its meeting Wednesday.
â€śItâ€™s something weâ€™re going to have to do soon,â€ť said Mark Sturtevant with the courthouseâ€™s maintenance department.
â€śThe only advantage of trying to do it yet this year is to get the rebates.â€ť
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.
â€śWeâ€™ll be forced to do it then,â€ť said Sturtevant.
The council agreed to approve the electric light project on Rider Electricâ€™s estimate.
