The City of Decatur is without a plan commission. But don't fret, one is on the way and no doubt will be in place in a couple of weeks.
The plan commission was dissolved Tuesday and all seven members tendered their resignations. It was a procedure designed to comply with Indiana law.
"It's a very complex situation," Mayor John Schultz said at Tuesday night's city council meeting. It is, however, being quickly resolved and a new plan commission will soon be in place, albeit with new faces.
In its search for a new superintendent, the North Adams Board of Education has been seeking public input on what the public considers to be important factors in the selection process.
As part of that desire for input, two members of the NA board attended Tuesday night's Decatur City Council to spread the word. Ben Faurote and Stacey Bussel made a 10-minute presentation to council, both underscoring the board's desire for public comment.
St. Joseph Catholic School recently honored Richard Braun of rural Decatur with The Distinguished Graduate Award.
Braun, who graduated from Decatur Catholic High in 1947, said in a news release that there are many memories of the years he spent at St. Joseph. One that stands out is The Sisters of St. Agnes and how in grade school it was their dedication to make students good kids.
Braun is active in his Catholic faith, it was noted in announcing the award.
