Bartholomew County Commissioners are proposing a $3 million dollar a year capital projects plan, that would maintain and repair county buildings and roads.
We asked candidates for Bartholomew County Council districts 3 & 4 what they thought of the commissioners plan and if the county has been underfunding maintenance..
In Council District 3 Councilman Mark Gorbett is being challenged by Dave Jones.
All county departments should be looking further ahead, Gorbett says.
Jones laid the blame for a lack of previous planning on the commissioners.
In Council District 4 Councilman Jorge Morales is facing Tom Owens.
Morales said the county has not had enough money for regular maintenance.
Owens says the county has definitely been underfunding maintenance.
