COLUMBIA CITY â The Whitley County Council approved $22,911 for an electric light project at Columbia Cityâs courthouse and annex building at its meeting Wednesday.
âItâs something weâre going to have to do soon,â said Mark Sturtevant with the courthouseâs maintenance department.
âThe only advantage of trying to do it yet this year is to get the rebates.â
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.
âWeâll be forced to do it then,â said Sturtevant.
The council agreed to approve the electric light project on Rider Electricâs estimate.
