BH to post Praixair noise complaint forms online

Back To Front Page



Burns Harbor residents should be on the lookout for an online complaint form regarding noise that may be coming from the Praxair plant.

At a previous Town Council meeting, residents were encouraged to call the non-emergency number for the police to report complaints, but Police Chief Mike Heckman reports only one or two people have done so.

Fire Chief Bill Arney noted that some people have called the Fire Department instead because they didn’t want to bother the police, and he thinks the online form would get a better response. He added that he has heard the noise too. “It has been very frequent and very loud lately.”

Both Clerk-Treasurer Jane Jordan and Council member Toni Biancardi noted that the Town has posted complaint forms before. The Council agreed that a specific form will be made for the recent noise complaints.

Park Department

Park Board Vice-President Angie Scott noted that Burns Harbor was chosen for Rebuilding Together Duneland, which takes place Saturday, April 28. She encourages residents to sign-up to volunteer by going to the Rebuilding Together website and picking the Burns Harbor park group. Council member Toni Biancardi added, “With Rebuilding together, you get a shirt, breakfast, and lunch, so you are well taken care of for your time.”

Scott also noted that Lego club will meet from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, April 14, at Lakeland Park. It’s free to join and kids over 5 are welcome.

Other Business

The Council approved Resolution 2018-03, which names April as Child Abuse Prevention Month in Burns Harbor.

Burns Harbor Scholarship applications are due May 31. The scholarship is open only to Town residents, but they can be residents of any age who are attending college classes.

Residents can now sign up on the municipal website to receive text alerts to stay informed, Jordan reported. When new material, such as information on upcoming paving projects or new policies goes up on the website, alerts will be sent to residents who sign up for the service.

Save the date for the Town rummage sale, which will be July 27-28 this year.
