Letter: No vote about town, so speak to officials

To the editor:

To all voters in unincorporated White River Township: You may have seen the many “no town” signs in yards along with political signs, but you do not get to vote on a town, for or against.

The people who want to create a town, and add a town tax to your tax bill, have used an old Indiana law that requires only 50 homeowners’ signatures, along with a survey and population count, among other things, to create a new town of Center Grove.

If you have strong feelings for or against, please write to the current and newly elected Johnson County commissioners and tell them your opinion.

The commissioners need to hear from you. They will make the decision on whether to create the town after hearing from the public.

Another way you can make your opinion count is to sign a petition against the formation of a town.

You can call Ann Reaume at 641-5245 to sign a petition; or write to your Johnson County commissioners at the county commissioners office, 86 W. Court St., Franklin, IN, 46131.

Remember, you do not get to vote on the town issue.
