STAR HILL ROAD SAVINGS
The commissioners agreed to hold a special meeting Wednesday at 6 p.m. to discuss Mac Construction’s review of the plans for Star Hill Road, which will create a more direct route from Starlight to Borden.
MAC Construction has been reviewing the plans in search of opportunities for savings to become eligible for a cost-reduction incentive from the Indiana Department of Transportation. MAC has identified $2.186 million in savings, according to county Engineer Brian Dixon.
If the commissioners approve of the changes to the project, MAC would receive half of what it saved on the project, while the county would receive the other half in the form of relinquishment credits from INDOT, which could be used to pay the local match on other INDOT-approved projects.
TAX SALES AND ATTORNEYS
Months after naming Rebecca Lockard the county’s attorney for an upcoming tax sale, the commissioners rescinded their approval of Lockard and named Laura Harbeson the county’s tax sale attorney.
The vote to name Harbeson the attorney for the tax sale was 2-1, with Perkins voting against.
The commissioners approved the change at the request of Treasurer David Reinhardt.
