Where have they been?
Since winning election to the U.S. House last November, the two representatives for Howard County have not been seen or heard from.
Rep. Susan Brooks, R-5th District, and Rep. Todd Rokita, R-4th District, have not made a visit to Kokomo or Howard County since taking office.
Rokita’s office does provide press releases to the local media about issues in the Washington, D.C. But none have been received from Brooks office, except for one from her campaign about a fund raiser in Hamilton County last month.
Resolving some Tipton issues
Just days after the Indiana Public Access Counselor was critical of Tipton County Auditor Gregg Townsend for not supplying meeting minutes for the county council and county commissioners, some of those missing minutes were approved.
The commissioners approved the minutes for the Nov. 5 and Nov. 19 meetings.
Commissioner Joe VanBibber asked Townsend to have the remainder of the missing minutes completed by the next meeting on March 11.
Echoing the sentiments of the members of the Tipton County Council, VanBibber said if it will cost some money to complete the meeting minutes that should be considered.
State of the city
Tipton Mayor Don Havens will be making his first “State of the City” address since taking office on Jan. 1, 2012 at 10 a.m. March 14 in the auditorium of the Tipton High School.
