Shipshewana sets committee to work on new development


The Shipshewana Town Council set up a committee to work with developers of a planned subdivision that would include extending Morton St. northward to North Village Dr.

The committee, which will include council president Roger Yoder and member Jerry Ankney, will meet Tuesday morning with developers Alvin Miller and Levi King to coordinate efforts and pave the way for the new development.

The property is being divided into several lots for commercial ventures.

The committee is also expected to meet with town attorney Kurt Bachman and the town’s engineer from DLZ.

In other business:

The council reminded residents that the town has a burn ordinance that prohibits the burning of leaves in town. Residents can take their leaves to the town’s composting facility near the wastewater treatment plant.

The town approved two purchases for the fire department. The first was for a commercial grade cooler, to be purchased from money from the gift fund for $2,399. The other was for 10 pairs of turnout gloves at $62.65 each.

The town set trick-or-treating from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 31.
