The Roanoke Town Council received updates on several projects in town from Phil Hibbert, of the structural engineering firm DLZ, who spoke during the council's meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 3.

County Surveyor Jay Poe told members of the Huntington County Council during their meeting on Monday, Nov. 25, that a grant could fund the installation of a railroad bridge over CR 900N, which is known as Lafayette Center Road when it crosses into Allen County.
The road is part of the $415 million, 200-mile Hoosier Heartland Highway Corridor project, which extends from Lafayette to Toledo, OH.

The Andrews Town Council discussed demolishing Miller's Pub during its meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 26.
The day prior to the council meeting was the deadline for the property to be razed. Its owner, Chuck Miller, had informed council during its Oct. 15 meeting that the town's assistance would not be needed in taking the structure down.
With the building still standing, council determined that the next course of action should be to advertise for bids to remove it.
