Please note that the Sewer Installation overview presentation scheduled for today’s Town Board meeting has been postponed to our March meeting due to illness on the part of the presenter.
Plan to attend the 09-Feb-2016 Rocky Ripple Town Council meeting to hear more about Citizens Energy projects that affect Rocky Ripple and about possible levee repair options from an Engineering expert. Special topics/presenters include:
Upcoming Sewer Installations in Rocky Ripple:
Dan Considine from Citizens Energy will provide a high level overview about the sewer extension project, Citizens service enhancements, upgrades to our utility systems, rate increases and the benefits to the community.
Levee Improvement Initiative:
Engineer James Barnes, president of Solomon Consulting, Inc. will brainstorm with us on possible strategies to repair and improve the levee and avenues for financial assistance, including state and federal grant opportunities.
The meeting begins promptly at 7:30 pm at the town hall.
The City of Indianapolis Department of Public Works (DPW) contacted the Rocky Ripple Town Council late this afternoon to inform us about the attached press release that was distributed this evening. It states that the DPW has decided, based upon the feasibility study completed, that the Canal Westbank Alignment project will not be pursued. Instead the City will be proceeding with the east side of the canal floodwall along Westfield Blvd.
The Westbank Alignment project could have affected Rocky Ripple homes along the canal, had it been accepted. City officials stated that we were the first area notified because we would be most affected by this. They pledged to work with us on what will happen now, based on this decision. They added that they understand the unique position of Rocky Ripple and will work with us to address our outstanding levee/flood protection concerns. Further info will be shared as we receive it.
A message from a fellow resident:
Two of us have received a call from a Lt. Anderson from the Marion County Sheriffs Dept saying that there is a warrant for our arrest because we failed to show up for jury duty. He instructed us to go to a local Krogers to get a recharge voucher and then request that the person give him their debit card number. This is a scam to get money and I want to make sure that no one falls victim to this fraud.
Rocky Ripple history has been made – the first ever all woman town council was elected on 03-Nov-2015. Thank you to those that have chosen to serve: Carla Gaff-Clark, Jill Morris, Mandy Redmond, town councilors at large, and Kandy Kendall, clerk/treasurer.
