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.
