Big Four Station bid on budget

Costs come in on target for estimate



She added that many of the residents of the street, and the names appearing on the petition, are renters and no longer live there, or are residents who have lived there only a short time.

“I feel like if historical homes can be saved, my street name can be saved,” Parker said.

Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore said part of the reason for approving the name change was that there were two Virginia Avenues in Jeffersonville. He also suggested a meeting with the street’s residents to work out the issues related to the name change.



The board of public works approved a resolution to take ownership of a small public garden at the corner of Spring and Chestnut streets.

Glossbrenner Garden, which was formerly owned by Indiana Landmarks, was being maintained by Jeffersonville City Pride and is a site for many city events. An effort to deed the property over to the city has been ongoing for several years.

City Pride has offered to continue to maintain the small garden, and provisions were included in the deed to ensure that the site remains a public space.



AML’s contract to construct a new Jeffersonville Police Department station off of 10th Street for $6.25 million was ratified by the board of public works.

The board offered its approval of the contract because change orders will come before the entity, as it is the city department managing the project. Change-order approvals will come before the board of public works because the board meets weekly, as opposed to the city’s redevelopment commission, which meets monthly.
