ANDERSON, Ind. —
"In a perfect world, the infrastructure needs of the city would be met with the appropriate revenue," but reality is something different, he said. "I would love to have a lot more revenue to devote to streets, but we have to adopt a balanced approach."
Madison County faces the same annual dilemma, said Board of County Commission President John Richwine, R-North District.
He said the county will chip and seal about 20 miles of road this year. In addition, E.ON Climate & Renewables, the company that developed the 200-megawatt, 8,500 acre Wildcat wind farm project in Madison and Tipton counties will chip and seal about 40 miles of road.
The company is doing that work as part of the agreement worked out with county officials when the project was approved. The roads will also be upgraded to accommodate the weight of trucks that are used help keep the wind turbines properly maintained, Richwine said.
