Township Board took care of some end-of-the-year business at its meeting
Township Trustee Suzanne Philbrick requested the board’s action on two
matters in particular. She first asked for members’ approval to present
possible budget transfer requests at the next meeting, at 5 p.m. Jan. 31,
and they accordingly granted it.
Philbrick had no
transfer requests at Wednesday’s meeting and said that she may not need any
transfers in January to reconcile the Trustee accounts.
The board also
granted Philbrick one-time permission to accept two donations to be used for
the annual Angel Tree Party. The donations were given as checks made out to
the Trustee’s Office, so Philbrick needed board approval to earmark the
funds, totaling $225. The money which will go toward buying the last few
gifts and gift cards needed for the Angel Tree.
The Angel Tree
Party, where recipients receive their gifts, will be held from 1 to 3 p.m.
Sunday, Dec. 10, at the Westchester Public Library’s Baugher Center, 100 W
Indiana Ave. in Chesterton. Giving to those in need through the Angel Tree
and Angel Tree Party has been a tradition of the Trustees Office for at
least 15 years, Philbrick said.
