County agrees to pay up to half the cost of a study on sidewalks along 57 south


        The city of Washington and Daviess County continue to be in the preliminary stages of a plan to possibly build sidewalks from Meridian Street in Washington south to Wal-Mart along 57 South.

          Today the Daviess County Commissioners announced they’ve learned that a feasibility study on what a project would entail and what it would cost would run 20 to over 30 thousand dollars.  The commissioners today agreed to pay half of that cost…Commissioner President Nathan Gabhart…

    At a later date, a study will be approved and conducted to find out how much it would cost to build a walkway from an area around Meridian Street out to Cumberland Drive and the Wal-Mart area.  A projected cost would be anywhere from 2 to 4 million dollars.

          In other business at today’s commissioners meeting, they approved some polling place changes. Voters in Madison 1,2 and 3 will vote in May at the Odon Community Building.  Also in Washington voters in Washington 2 will move from voting from the Masonic Lodge to the Courthouse Basement. Again Washington 2 voters will not vote at the courthouse basement.
