Fountain can save with gas discount

COVINGTON, Ind. — Fountain County will see more than $3,000 in savings on its gas bill for county-owned buildings if they switch to ProLiance Energy of Indianapolis.

ProLiance is an independent company owned by Vectren and Citizens Gas.

ProLiance, who had a representative at the Oct. 15 meeting, studied the county’s bills with Vectren from August 2011 through July of this year. The total savings with ProLiance would have been $3,149.65.

“That looks pretty good to me,” said commissioner Walt Wilson.

In other business, commissioners:

  • Approved an ordinance that would allow retiring persons in the sheriff’s department with more than 20 years service to receive their sidearms.
  • Tabled action on determining the procedure for closing county roads in weather-related incidents until the Nov. 19 meeting.
  • Will have the health department come back with a revised ordinance proposal for food establishments.
  • Will go to the county council for an additional $20,000 for the solid waste district and an additional $2,968 for plat books.
  • Will have a commissioner sale to dispose of 23 properties that did not sell at a tax sale.
  • Will transfer tax sale certificates for Spangler, Day and McGlade properties to the city of Attica.
  • Closed a portion of Aiken Street in Silverwood.
