SURE SIGNS OF SPRING

It's official! Spring is just around the corner! The Turkey Buzzards are back congregating on the South Water Tower and roosting in the trees on Halibut Drive. They used to gather at the bottom of Church Hill on the Sipes property but in the last couple of years now hang around near the fire station.

SCUBA DIVING ANYONE?

Driving by the Sweetwater Beach today and notice Scuba Divers! The Johnson County Sheriff's Diving Team was doing their Winter Diving Certification. They said they were hoping for ice to dive through for their certification but......warm winter.....no ice. Hard to believe our warm temperatures this month. Sweetwater had water skiers last Saturday. Warm weather predicted for this coming weekend may see boaters and more water skiers.

WATER RATE INCREASES

It was long overdue! The monthly charge for water is going to increase. Prince's Lakes owns the water utility which gets its water from deep wells located near Blue River in Camp Atterbury. Prince's Lakes then sells water to several surrounding areas including Cordry Sweetwater. A 16% rate increase has been set for 2017. Add to this the expense that CSCD is incurring for the installation of a new water main from the Brown County line to the north water tower and other improvements long needed will result in increased monthly water bills. The average user will see an increase of around $12.50 to their monthly water bill.
