TIF board recommends engineering firm for Veteran’s Way


After a firm is officially tied to the project and designs are made and approved by the TIF board, the project will move on to the City Council for approval. If approved, Veteran’s Way will become an official project, instead of a proposed project. The board also voted to allow Murray to enter into negotiations with the owners of parcels 9 and 10, land necessary to the Veteran’s Way project.

It was announced that the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) would be accepting applications November 1 for new projects to begin in 2017 and 2018. INDOT has not put out a call for new projects in the last four years.

The board sought approval for Gary Murray to begin submitting applications for phase two of the Veteran’s Way project. Several board members noted that the process is a long and extensive one and it was wise to begin the applying as early as possible.

Ken Dornich, TIF board president and long-term member, announced that Wednesday’s meeting would be his last.

Mayor Gary Herbert honored Dornich for his years of service with a plaque from himself and the City Council.

Just before the end of the meeting, Dornich stated that there was intentionally no public comments section on the agenda for the meeting. He said any member of the public wishing to voice their concerns may contact the TIF board president to have themselves added to the agenda for the next meeting.
