The town of Freelandville will get some help with its streets, with help announced by the Knox County Commissioners. Commissioners’ president Kellie Streeter told the Knox County Council Freelandville will get just over 150-thousand dollars for street paving.
Since Freelandville is un-incorporated, the street work is handled by Knox County. The funds come from a grant to repair roads affected by installation of new sewer lines in the Freelandville area.
In other business, Council members appointed Benji Boyd as their “point person” on the discussion of rural broadband expansion. State officials want to enhance broadband service to un-served or under-served rural areas through the “Next Level Connections” program. Boyd– the Knox County Engineer– was apponinted, due to his knowledge of county righs-of-way.
Finally, Council agreed to move its meetings permanently to Vincennes City Hall. The meetings had been held at the Vincennes Fortnightly Club. The sessions will remain on the second Tuesday of each month at five p-m.
