Chamber bringing Colts Fan Fest to Greensburg


“Hopefully we’ll have more people bustling about on Fridays,” Robinson said.

The commissioners agreed to a test run of the program from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, May 9, in order to see how the process works. Public safety was the primary concern Monday.

In other downtown news, Robinson has been working with Greensburg Mayor Gary Herbert and Decatur County Commissioner Rick Nobbe on determining a company to maintain the flower islands around the square and near the war memorial.

Robinson added her hopes that the work could be completed prior to the opening of the farmer’s market, with regular maintenance taking place in line with popular courthouse square events.

“The city is more than willing to get this done,” Mayor Herbert said. “We’re just trying to get the best bang for our buck.”

Making the most of funds is a prime goal for Decatur County Highway Superintendent Mark Mohr.

Mohr told the commissioners he met last week with the Decatur County Council to discuss problems with some of the county’s road equipment. The highway superintendent told the Daily News he is still in the early stages of looking at options and cost for fixing or replacing the equipment.

“The more money we use on equipment, the less we’ll use to keep our roads repaired,” Mohr said.

In terms of repairs, Mohr described recent work as “patching, patching and more patching.” The long and brutal winter has caused a myriad of road problems throughout the state, and Decatur County is no different, Mohr said.

“We’ve concentrated a lot on crumbled up asphalt and potholes,” Mohr said.

The final April meeting also gave the commissioners an opportunity to hear the state of the county’s 183 bridges, which must be inspected every two years according to federal mandate.
