Proponents to delay giving plan to board until new commissioners settle in

A group intends to postpone bringing forward a proposal to create a new town of Center Grove when new Johnson County commissioners take office.

The proposal would have to be approved by the commissioners, but a majority of those who will be in office in January said they don’t support creating a new town in White River Township.

Two of the three commissioners said they have mostly heard criticism of the town proposal from residents, don’t see the point of adding another tax for a town government and don’t want to raise taxes for anyone. The commissioners said they believe Center Grove area residents are largely satisfied with the existing county services and don’t want to pay more for a new town government.
