My Resolution to Help Businesses and Ensure $12M for S.R. 37
Yesterday we (i.e. County Council) unanimously approved $12 million in funding for the proposed overhaul of State Road 37. The County Council had been considering delaying a vote on the funding, but I introduced a resolution to pledge support to fund a marketing campaign for businesses, which swayed the council's decision to move forward with the vote.
The resolution urges Fishers and the Hamilton County Board of Commissioners to create a marketing plan to help nearby businesses during construction. I did this as a show of good faith that we're willing to work together to mitigate the pain these businesses are likely to feel during construction.
