A juvenile raccoon spent Thursday morning near the curb of Connexion Way in Columbia City, munching on the contents of a discarded fast food restaurant bag. The little guy wasn’t thrilled about the intrusion, but hunger was a bigger priority as he made quick work of the bag’s main ingredient, a stale biscuit. The encounter raised a curious question. If a nocturnal animal is out during the day, is he working third shift?

CITY SETS UTILITY RATES

May 24, 2012


COLUMBIA CITY — The Columbia City Common Council moved to pass an ordinance establishing rates for the waterworks at Tuesday’s meeting. A public hearing was held, but after no one came forward, the council passed the ordinance.
The rate adjustment, shown above 33 percent, will not affect electric, wastewater, sewer or storm water.
In the council’s last meeting Mayor Ryan Daniel said the increase is mainly due to the fact that water utility has been running in the negative for a little while, due to a decrease of usage.
