Comments: The heat advisory is well warranted. It feels like it's over 110 out there. What the heck are those without air or fans doing? The city never even offered to open city hall or do anything. I guess they think you can go to Walmart. But you know if you can't afford and air conditioner or fan you can't afford a car or taxi.
Admin reply: Do you remember when the city and county let a veteran freeze to death in his shack? And then they let a senior veteran last winter try to keep warm in his shack by a single candle.
If they would let you freeze to death they surely would not lift a finger to help you fight heat stroke.
Been to city hall or the courthouse lately? Nice and cool in there and I bet the health dept. is really cool also.
Oh, I forgot it is not their job to care for poor, old, senior disabled people. They were elected to spend our tax dollars and take care of their friends.
The forum does have a resident RN and will check on anyone by request or anyone that needs help.

Submitted by Name: Another Mitigation Scam?
Comments: Everyone remember how mitigation money to help businesses that were impacted by the new bridge construction went to everyone BUT those businesses? Guess what, Round 2 may be coming soon with the bridge gateway approach. I'm sure Main Street, Chamber, CVB and somehow the city will use the money for themselves and their little pet projects. Of course residents impacted by all this can just go..you know what in the wind.
OH..and Don't Care, enjoy your consulting party meeting when it happens. INDOT will tell you then what they have already decided.

Comments: Is that accurate that the comprehensive plan had to be written by the plan commission and not by a mayors appointed committee?
What the hecks the plan commission and who's on it ? Why can't the mayor just use his usual committee to do a plan? What's so special about a plan commission?

Comments: Have you been down Hanging Rock Hill lately. The state of IN and the city of Madison are trying to let it fall over the side.
Why you say? You are looking at the next Hatcher Hill walking trail.

Submitted by Name: Plan commission From: And laws
Comments: Nobody on the forum has said much about one big problem with the so called comprehensive plan. Last I knew state law says comprehensive plans are to be done by the city plan commission . It can't be don't by a partisan appointed little bunch of mayoral groupies. I thought Larry Henry posted some things months back that the mayor announced a special group would be working on a comprehensive plan. So as far as I'm concerned any plan that isn't done under the laws that protect the community from being politically manipulated isnt worth wasting the time to p on. I'm not even sure the city council can sign off on a plan that wasn't done legally.
Seems to me the reason you have to have the plan commission do the work is because laws say you have to have people form both parties and certain types of equal representation. I think approving anything the same old Welch cronies writes up is a waste of time.
I've got a question though. Can a citizen file a complaint or sue the city for acting in an illegal manner by violating that law?
