Township Poor Relief
The 73,069 people who received $5.3 million in poor relief from township trustees in Lake, Porter and LaPorte counties in 2013 represent a heavy burden on local government resources, local government officials said.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Indiana Senate has approved legislation, long sought by Griffith residents, limiting Calumet Township spending and giving Griffith a chance to leave the township if spending continues at current levels.
INDIANAPOLIS | Griffith has won back the chance to leave Calumet Township, but only if the township fails to reduce spending on its own next year and a subsequent state takeover also fails.
INDIANAPOLIS | The possibility of Griffith leaving Calumet Township and joining another faded significantly Wednesday after a Senate committee substituted new limits on township poor relief spending for House-approved Griffith separation legislation.
INDIANAPOLIS | A Statehouse hearing on legislation that could enable Griffith to leave Calumet Township and join another township was postponed due to Tuesday's region snowstorm.
