The North Town Board approved the second reading of an ordinance that prohibits the sale of synthetic marijuana during its meeting Monday night. A Public Hearing concerning this ordinance will be held on Monday, January 3rd, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. CT at the North Judson Civic Center. A third and final reading will be approved during the Board’s regular meeting that evening at 6:30 p.m. CT.
The North Judson Civic Center is getting some repairs. The town council agreed to hire Rodney Back to tuck-point the brick exterior of the structure for $2,070. He is also replacing the four basement windows with glass blocks for a cost of $1,450. Council members also approved a one-year extension of their fixed-price natural gas contract with Border Energy. The town participates in NIPSCO’s First Choice program, which allows them to purchase gas from a vendor at a considerable savings. Clerk-Treasurer Donna Henry says Nordic Energy also submitted a proposal, but Border had a better price.
