CHESTERTON | The Redevelopment Commission on Monday approved additional funds for the Ind. 49 corridor project.

A change order was needed to fund the removal of farm trash from the Pope Farm to continue utility lines to the pump station, Chesterton Town Engineer Mark O’Dell said.

The change order would be for no more than *$30,000, O'Dell said. The farm debris was typical and had been buried over the years, he said.

During the Town Council meeting later Monday, Street Commissioner John Schnadenberg and attorney Chuck Lukmann presented the council with bids for a single-axle dump truck that ranged from $149,000 to $159,000. The council took the bids under advisement.

Schnadenberg also discussed salt use this winter.

“We’ve had a lot of events that have been inch or half inch snows, and we’ve used about 775 tons so far. A lot of people think that we haven’t used any, but we’ve been called out 13 times to spread salt," he said.

 

* Editor's note: This story has been corrected from an earlier version. A story that appeared in Tuesday’s edition incorrectly stated the cost to the town of Chesterton to remove buried farm equipment where crews are installing new utilities. The story should have stated the cost would be between $18,000 and $30,000.
