Here's a recap of our City By City report from Tuesday, April 22, 2014:
Some much needed relief for Middlebury residents, struggling with poor water pressure. They say it's gotten so bad they can't function normally in their homes. According to the Elkhart Truth, the community presented a plan Monday night to update the water treatment plant, add a booster station in affected neighborhoods, upgrade the monitoring system, and replace a well. They hope to make the changes before next winter.
Some local runners competed Monday at the Boston Marathon, placing in the top 100. Andy Williams is a teacher at Northridge Middle School. He placed 60th with a time of 2 hours, 26 minutes and 38 seconds. That was the second fastest time of all Hoosiers. Michigan's lieutenant governor Brian Calley also ran. He finished in just over 4 ½ hours.
Residents will have easier access to community laws. The code of ordinances is now online. According to our reporting partners at the Elkhart Truth, the old code book was out of date, so residents often had to ask county office workers for help. Now, up-to-date information is easily accessible from home. We have the website link posted on the Big Red Bar at WNDU.com if you want to check up on the ordinances.
There's a job fair today in Bristol. It is a joint event from Robert Weed Plywood and Forge Industrial Staffing. They're looking to fill positions ranging from machine operators to janitors. Jobs pay between $10 and $15 an hour. The fair is taking place at the American Legion on Maple St. from 4 to 7 p.m.
