CHESTERTON | Chesterton Fire Chief Mike Orlich reported the town’s new ambulance has been in service since Sunday evening and had been out on two calls so far.
The town had been using a temporary ambulance since June 1 and Orlich thanked Superior Ambulance for getting the rig.
Council members thanked Superior and the Fire Department on working together.
“It’s a seamless operation if ever there was one,” said Council member Jeff Trout.
Orlich also reported Frontline Foundations will soon be moving into the vacant property on Broadway that once housed a veterinary clinic and was prior home to Rax and Burger Chef.
Town Engineer Mark O’Dell reported the town and its MS4 Coordinator Jennifer Gadzala has received a number of awards for their work on storm water infiltration mitigation and education.
Town Manager Bernie Doyle reported Lemon Tree Mediterranean Grill, at 356 Indian Boundary, will now be offering beer and wine as part of the downtown riverfront designation, and an antique store will be moving into the corner storefront on Broadway and Second Street.
Trout closed the meeting by saying that Thursday’s upcoming groundbreaking for Urschel Laboratories will be a history-making event for the town.
