Scottsburg officials consider buying old industrial building for Electric Department PDF Print E-mail

    Scottsburg officials are considering making a bid on a vacant factory building on U.S. Highway 31 South.        The old Jay Packaging building has an office section connected to a large warehouse-type structure. The company for which the complex was originally built in the 1980s withdrew last year to its East Coast plant after experiencing several years of dwindling work in the thermo-form packaging industry.
    In looking at the building, Mayor Bill Graham said during the January 12 Scottsburg Board of Works and Public Safety that it might do very well for the city's electric department and its growing wireless service, Citizens Communications Corporation Broadband (c3bb.com).
    Currently, the Electric Department is housed on Bond Street in a residential area. That facility is land-locked, advised Jim Binkley, Electric Department Superintendent. “There's no place for us to go if we need more room,” he said during the meeting. Citizens Communications' vehicles and equipment are housed both at the Electric Department and the Street Department with its office at City Hall.

Recent fires, accident around Scottsburg keep local department bustling PDF Print E-mail

    One injury accident east of Scottsburg and several fires around the city gave the Scottsburg Volunteer Fire Department a stretch of activity at the end of 2009.
    Chief James Richey said rescuers used the Jaws of Life on a vehicle on December 28 that had been struck from behind by a large grain hauler at the intersection of State Roads 56 and 203.
    The Scottsburg department was assisting Lexington Volunteer Fire Department on that accident. The driver of the pickup truck that was hit, Harold Bowen, was freed from the wreckage in about ten minutes. Bowen was later found to have suffered no broken bones. His late model pickup was a total loss.
    On Tuesday, December 29, an early morning structure fire occurred at 2 a.m. on Lynhurst Street in Scottsburg.
    Chief Richey said tenants of the house owned by Tim Hutchinson lost electrical power around midnight. “The husband and wife decided she would take their child and go and stay with relatives and the husband would stay there. He told me he woke up around 2 a.m. because he just felt something wasn't right. He touched an upstairs wall and felt heat. That's when he called the fire department,” related the fire chief.
