Georgetown Streets


July 31, 2008

Dear Mr. Editor:

I am writing to you regarding the article entitled, "Georgetown discusses sewers, streets" which appeared in the July 23, 2008 edition of the Clarion News.

On page 16 of the paper, Mr. Simpson, the Reporter, wrote that the previous Town Council did not accept the streets of Copperfield into the Town's inventory. That is not true. There is not a second step in the process. Either the streets are accepted and reported to the State, or they are not. The Town cannot report a street to the state without accepting it into the Town's inventory. The Town of Georgetown owns the vast majority of the streets in Copperfield, and they were accepted and reported to the State of Indiana by ordinance(s). When the Town reports acceptance of newly constructed streets to the State Department of Transportation, the Town begins receiving gasoline tax revenue sharing from the State for the maintenance of those streets. Hidden Springs Drive is the "oldest" street in Copperfield that had not been accepted by the 2004-2007 Town Council. Any streets that have been built and final paved since the completion of Hidden Springs Drive have not been accepted by the Town, nor reported to the State.

Attached is a listing of all of the streets which are owned by Georgetown, as reported to and accepted by the State Department of Transportation. When the 2004-2007 Town Council came into office, the State only had a record of eight miles of streets in the Town, and Georgetown was only receiving gasoline taxes based on eight miles of streets owned as public right-of-way. As a result of actions by the 2004-2007 Town Council, the Town ended 2007 with a total of 16.39 miles of streets for which it was receiving gasoline tax revenue sharing from the State Department of Transportation.

If you would like to verify these facts you could call Mr. Eric Conklin, at the State Department of Transportation at 317-233-1059.

Sincerely,

Kenton G. Griffin
