The Daviess County Commissioners Tuesday approved a request for a permit to allow Daviess County Rural Water to lay 100,000 ft of line between Washington and Loogootee. Derrick Wiggins of Midwestern Engineers represented DCRW and said the project would mostly be on private easements but would impact multiple roads. Wiggins said plans were to bore under paved roads, but to cut the gravel roads. The project will take about a year to complete.
In other business the Commissioners approved two inter-local agreements with the City of Washington. One agreement splits the cost of a feasibility study of a sidewalk along SR 57 south of Washington to the Wal-Mart area. The other calls for the County to pay the City $35,000 for its animal control services.
The Commissioners also heard a report on the progress of the Court House Annex. Project Supervisor Michael Schapker told the Commissioners that the foundation work was completed and the structural steel should start going up this week.
