Sen. Bayh's seat up for grabs.... Final list of primary election candidates reveals fights ahead in both parties PDF Print E-mail
Written by Marty Randall   
Wednesday, 10 March 2010 00:00
    Voters in both the Republican and Democrat primary elections this May 4 will find themselves making decisions on several nominations for the fall general election.
    With the stunning announcement last week by U.S. Senator Evan Bayh about the two-term Democrat politician dropping out of national politics, that seat will be empty in the Democrat Primary, but the Republican Primary will offer six candidates for the party nomination.
    The District 9 race in both parties for U.S. Representative, the office now held by Baron Hill (D-Seymour), has also attracted fields. Hill, according to news releases dated February 22, may be seriously considering leaving that office – and the Democrat primary race – to run for Senator Bayh's seat.

'Best news of all': Lexington gets OCRA funding for sanitary sewer project PDF Print E-mail
Written by Marty Randall

    Scott County Commissioners got what was described by Commissioner Bob Tobias as “the best news of all” during their business meeting on Tuesday night, March 2.
    Melissa Woods, community development specialist with River Hills Economic Development District, and Larry Bower, president of the board of the Scott County Regional Sewer District (RSD), announced that the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) has awarded over $2 million in grant money for the long-awaited Lexington sanitary sewer project.
    Commissioners Tobias, Larry Blevins and Mark Hays have served as the sponsoring entity to request the funds. And none of them could believe their ears when Woods told them that OCRA is giving a grant of $2,147,412 toward the total cost of the project, which is estimated to be a little under $3 million. A total of $82,909 has been pledged by RSD as its local match. Additional funding has been requested of the Indiana State Revolving Loan Fund (RLF), but news of its contribution toward the project had not yet been received by county officials early last week.

Austin City Council takes title to three dilapidated houses PDF Print E-mail

    Three houses in dilapidated condition are now owned by the City of Austin.
    Austin Mayor Doug Campbell told members of the City Council that he planned to record the city's titles to those properties deeds in the very near future during the Council's meeting on February 23.
    The action is a continuation of the Council's policy to obtain title to properties determined to be in extremely poor condition. In the past, the city has torn down such homes and then placed the cleared property for sale to give others the chance to build nice houses in the community. Any profit realized from the sale of such properties is placed in a special fund used to buy dilapidated homes. Other monies in that fund come from fines placed against people who do not keep their properties clean and grass trimmed.
    Properties in this round included Lots 18 and 19 in the Allendale Addition and homes on Factory Drive and Wade Street.
