The Indianapolis City-County Council did not vote on a more than $400 million proposed justice center. The measure could come up again next month. The council did approve $35 million for repairs as part of the city's “Fix Our Neighborhoods Now!” program. Media Statement Regarding Approval of Proposal 143
Tonight, in a unanimous vote of 29-0, the City County Council approved Proposal 143, allocating $35 million dollars for critical street and sidewalk repairs. The allocation represents one-half of the bond issue approved during the Fix Our Neighborhoods Now! program launched last fall. The funds will be spent across the entire city with every council district receiving support.
“Proposal 143 is just one element of the four-year commitment the Council has made towards fixing our neighborhoods,” said Public Works Committee Chair Zach Adamson. “The Public Works committee will continue our efforts to bring to the full council recommendations to ensure that resources are allocated throughout the city fairly as opposed to funding pet projects which we've witnessed on numerous occasions”
