Police Merit Commission meeting set in Jeffersonville

Road closures and detours on the way


JEFFERSONVILLE — Road closure for Hops, Shops and Chardonnay

Road closures for Hops, Shops and Chardonnay have been changed in order to accommodate a car show that will be a part of this year’s event. The event, which will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 19, features beer and wine tastings inside locally owned shops and restaurants along Spring Street in Jeffersonville. There will also be appetizers and live music.

Street closures include Spring Street, from Seventh Street to Court Avenue, and also on Spring Street from Chestnut Street to Market Street.

Both closures will be in effect form 4:30 to 9 p.m. Tickets for the event are $15 in advance and $20 the day of the event.

Salem-Noble detour

City Engineer Andy Crouch requested a temporary three-way stop be installed at the intersection of Shungate Road and Utica-Sellersburg Road due to work ongoing at the railroad tracks near the intersection of Salem-Noble Road and Ind. 62. Salem-Noble Road will be closed from Ind. 62 to Shungate Road while a railroad crossing is replaced and widened.

Crouch said the closure is expected to last two weeks. The three-way stop requested was unanimously approved.

Police station change order

A change order in the design work for the new Jeffersonville Police Department station was approved Wednesday. The Estopinal Group is developing the plans and the change requested is due to alternates being added to the plans and to include value engineering into the plans. The amendment to the contract totaled $37,500.

City Attorney Les Merkley said the city expects to close on the bond to finance the construction of the police station in November.

Halloween road changes

A request to make Kewanna Drive and Chippewa Drive one-way streets for trick-or-treat was unanimously approved. The streets will be one-way from 5 to 10 p.m. Oct. 31.

Whispering Oaks

A request by Steve Mason for the Whispering Oaks subdivision included painting stop lines on the road where signs are located in the neighborhood. According to Mason there are 19 stop signs in the neighborhood.

In addition, a request to change the globes on the street lights to conform to the other street lights was approved. The homeowner will pay for the globes to be installed at a cost of about $6,000, Mason said.
