The Salem City Council met for their monthly public meeting on the evening of February 13, 2012. They first received an update on the Lake John Hays expansion from Mike Goering, engineer and designer on the project. The LJH expansion is intended to raise the lake’s pool level in order to increase capacity and add an estimated year’s supply of water to the reservoir. The council approved the plan back in September of 2010.
Congratulations are in order for Floyd Central High School’s Dazzlers who came back from the Universal Dance Association’s 2012 National Dance Team Championship with the championship title in pom. This year’s win was extra special for the ladies, as it marked their 10th consecutive win in the category since 2003. The Dazzlers also brought home the championship title in the hip-hop category this year, a first for the group.
Effective immediately, the I-64 Sherman Minton Bridge over the Ohio River between Southern Indiana and Louisville have been reopened to traffic. Motorists should stay alert when driving through the area as other drivers get accustomed to the new traffic pattern.
