Debate over town going strong: Center Grove plan on hold until next year but petition drives continue

Residents who oppose the proposed town plan to have two more drive-through petition drives in October and a booth at the Bargersville Flea Market where people can sign petitions against the town. Organizers said they’ll try to get enough signatures to block consideration of the Center Grove town proposal but will settle for enough to persuade the Johnson County Commissioners to reject it.
