MARSHALL COUNTY ‚ÄĒ A recent theft of copper wire from a Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO) substation has sprouted an investigation.
‚ÄúSeveral hundred feet of copper wire and copper lugs were stolen from the Burr Oak substation,‚ÄĚ said NIPSCO Director of External Communications Nick Meyer. ‚ÄúUnfortunately, with serving 32 counties, we see these kind of incidents sometimes.‚ÄĚ
Thieves target copper wire to sell it to scrap dealers. The theft isn‚Äôt just a criminal matter. It could be a matter of life and death.
MARSHALL COUNTY ‚ÄĒ There are many trees that line the banks of the Yellow River. Property owners Penny and Alice Cleveland expressed concern with getting to the bottom of who is responsible to care for those trees. According to Penny Cleveland the trees do not fall on her property line although there is a tree that is unsafe and could damage her property if it falls. Alice has a similar problem.
MARSHALL COUNTY ‚ÄĒ The Marshall County Commissioners named two new leaders for the Highway Department. The commissioners recently added two positions; Administrative Manager and Supervisor of County Highways. The pair will work directly under the commissioner. The position of Highway Superintendent will go unfilled but will remain as a position description in the event the department needs the position in the future. Get the details in today's Pilot News paper.
