Water company purchase mulled in Sellersburg

Town looking at new logo



The change in lettering would also trigger a change in pricing. 

“To put this logo on the big tower over off of [Ind.] 60, on one side would be $7,600,” Rhodes said.

He added that to put the logo on the downtown tower it would cost $5,800 per side. The current cost to paint block lettering on the towers, per side, is about $4,800.

“The response I’m getting with this, 98 percent of the feedback is orange and blue,” Meyer said. The orange-and-blue color scheme would match the school colors for Silver Creek High School, the only high school located in Sellersburg.

Town Councilman Terry Langford said that he would like to see Sellersburg’s name with an American flag on the water towers.

What was agreed to is that a logo would only be needed on one side of the tower.

“My opinion ... if we’re going to go with something a little more expensive, we can reduce the cost by putting it on one side,” Rhodes said. “And I think putting it on one side is enough.”  

Ken Alexander suggested let the company develop a template for the logo to show the council how it would look on the tower before a decision is determined.



The city of Jeffersonville has been granted approval to make improvements to property in Sellersburg.

Jeffersonville has requested access to the waterworks well field off River Road where it is installing a lift station.

“Basically, we have some property at the very end of that [area] where they’re wanting to put a lift station,” Alexander said. “They’ll do some improvements to the whole site that will benefit us.”

The site improvements include grading and paving work at a minimum anticipated value of $10,000 to $15,000.



The town council gave its official approval to assume police protection for the recently annexed subdivision of Covered Bridge and the Willows.

Sellersburg has already begun providing police protection to the area and Meyer, who is also a captain with Clark County Sheriff’s Department, said Clark County is still responding to calls.
