Hoosier mayors and their city councils are beleaguered by fiscal crises set upon them by Indiana’s legislature. Some mayors take up the challenge, working hard to trim expenditures, doing as little harm as possible to the public’s welfare. Other mayors invest in fantasies.
Two such fantasies, notable for their inventiveness, are being pressed upon the public in Anderson and Logansport.
First is the proposal to flood parts of Anderson and Mounds State Park by damming the White River. This proposal, as I understand it, has received $600,000 from the State of Indiana for a study of its benefits and costs.
