As their first official act the new White River Township Board voted to reject the plan of reorganization with Greenwood in a move to overturn the previous board’s move to put the issue on the ballot. In June of last year the old board agreed to accept the reorganization plan between White River Township and Greenwood and put the issue before the voters in an upcoming election. The first plan was the May 2o10 primary, then the November 2010 general election. When the county election board ruled the paper work was not filed in time the earliest the issue could appear on the ballot is November 2012.
What action did board take? We have two videos to explain it. The first is the short version, prompted by a question from resident Dick Huber. We also have included a longer version with the reading of the resolution and vote.
The board also did some housekeeping including, moving some money from one area to another to allow the township to keep the two part-time assistants on the payroll. It also approve the salary for the trustee and board members at the same level as 2010. We will have more details on those actions later.
Near the end of the meeting, new board chair Greg Rainbolt had some thoughts on the future of the township and the need to examine all the options, including the idea of creating a new town of Center Grove. His comments can be seen here.
