City sets hours for trick-or-treat


The City of Crawfordsville will observe Trick-or-Treat hours 5-8 p.m. Oct. 31.

The hours were set Wednesday by Crawfordsville Board of Public Works & Safety members during their regular weekly meeting at the city building. The board also approved a request by Tom Klein to close West Main Street from Grant Avenue to Barr Street during that time period to allow for the influx of trick-or-treaters who visit the west side neighborhood annually.

In other business, the board:

• Approved a request from members of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity to abate the city’s noise ordinance Friday until midnight for an event highlighting singer Clayton Anderson. Fraternity members were asked to notify neighbors in advance.

• Approved a request from Krista Kobel to place a table in the alley adjacent to 117 E. Main St. for the grand opening of AWG Wellness from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday and 1-3:30 p.m. Sunday. The alley is already closed to traffic.

• Agreed to transfer a corporate warranty deed from the city to 4-H Club Inc. for the approximately 14 acres of property that makes up the fairgrounds at 400 Parke Ave. The city and 4-H Inc. have been working on the arrangement for some time. Ownership of the property will open funding opportunities to 4-H Inc. so that they may make substantial improvements. The property would revert to the city if 4-H Inc. dissolved or attempted to change the use of the property.

• Approved an additional work order with JS McCollugh Excavating Inc. for the Landfill Stabilization Project. Additional soil is needed to cap the former landfill. The change order amounts to $12,000. The overall project cost is $437,064. Both the city and the county are equally funding the project.

Initially, the project included moving 25,000 cubic yards of soil from Random House to the landfill site, but an additional 2,000 cubic yards is need and is being moved from the Comfort Drive project to complete the project.

• Approved the Montgomery County Multi Hazard Mitigation Plan.

• Approved an agreement between the city and Crawfordsville Masonic Temple, which allows them to seek grant funding.

• Approved work order requests from Barry Lewis, Code Enforcement Officer, for mowing at: 201 McCormick Drive, owned by Brandon and Nicole Spivey; 301-303 W. North St., owned by Dan Malek; 216 W. North St., owned by JJD Rental Group LLC; 605 Russell Ave., owned by Rodger Heer and Martha Shear; and 513 Tuttle Ave., owned by 513 Tuttle Ave. Land Trust.
