Staff of a New Albany firm will soon be calling residents in Austin.

Workers with Key Research and Analysis Inc. will be contacting homeowners and renters by phone or mail to obtain income information. Contact will be made randomly, and all information provided will remain confidential.

City officials placed an advertisement in these Green Banner Publications newspapers recently to let residents know the calls and mailings are legitimate and that their answers are needed for the income survey. The information is required to apply successfully for most grants available to communities. This most recent survey will enable officials to provide up-to-date information.

The City of Austin has successfully applied for grants to repave streets and to tear down buildings unfit for habitation.

Anyone with questions about the income survey is welcome to contact office of Mayor Dillo Bush at 812-794-6646.

People seeking medical help to stem HIV now have a new option in Scott County, thanks to a two-year grant.

Scott County received the grant from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA). Its money funds two clinics per month, on the first and third Wednesdays, at the Scott County Health Department One-Stop Shop, 825 U.S. Highway 31 North, Austin.

The first clinic was held on July 19. In August, the dates for the clinics are Wednesday, August 2, and Wednesday, August 16.

Those wanting appointments should call the One-Stop Shop at 812-794-2730.

The IU Health Infectious Disease clinic is partnered with LifeSpring Health Systems and the local Health Department to provide HIV and Hepatitis C care to any person who is currently not seeing a provider, explained Michelle Goodin, administrator of the Scott County Health Department.

“We would like to thank the Scott County Commissioners and Scott County Council for allowing this grant to bring these much-needed services to our community,” stated Goodin.

She also expressed appreciation for the application work performed by staff of River Hills Economic Development District, LifeSpring Health Systems and Indiana University Health for their partnership and the community for its welcoming support of these services.
