Interest Could Help Build New Shelter, Center

Share this post

There's a lot of interest in how accrued interest from the sale of the county hospital six years ago might be spent... it's up to nearly eleven-million dollars. Porter County Commissioners have forwarded a request to the County Council requesting one-and-a-half million dollars go toward building a new animal shelter, at State Roads 130 and 149... and another million and a half on constructing an educational center at Sunset Hill Farm County Park, which is at US 6 and Meridian Road.
Earlier this year, the county agreed to put 600-thousand dollars of the interest money into buying and renovating the Legacy Banquet Center on West Lincolnway in Valparaiso for Porter County PACT alternative sentencing, community service, counseling and related programs for offenders and former offenders.
