Back To Front Page



The Burns Harbor Town Council is going out for bid on its 2018 paving projects, after receiving word of funding to pave Wall Street at its meeting last week.

Council Member and Redevelopment Commission President Marcus Rogala announced that the RDC will be footing the bill for the $63,000 paving project on Wall Street. Rogala secured the funding at the RDC meeting earlier that evening.

The council will also go out for bids for paving on North Boo Road, Lively Lane, and Chippewa Trail, to be funded by the 2017/18 Community Crossing grant, awarded by the State of Indiana, with bids to be opened on March 8.

Join a Board

Members of the public are invited to serve the Town on a board or commission. There is one open seat on each of the following: Board of Zoning Appeals and Redevelopment Commission. These seats require a party affiliation of either Democrat or Republican.

The application for board and commission seats can be found on the municipal website. Those interested can either submit the application or a letter of interest to Clerk-Treasurer Jane Jordan. Send by email to or by mail to 1240 N. Boo Road. Any resident who is not also an elected official can also apply to sit on the Shared Ethics Commission. Contact Jane Jordan to apply in writing. All applications must be in by Jan. 10.

Other Business

The Board voted unanimously to renew its Northwest Indiana Forum membership, a non-profit that helps support economic development in communities in the region. Membership costs $550 per year.

Leaf pick-up is over for the year, and spring clean-up will be announced at a later date. Anyone who still has a lot of brush can call the Street Department at 787-9187 to arrange pick-up.

Concerning Christmas tree disposal, Street Superintendent Pat Melton said residents should put trees out with their trash. If the trees are not taken during trash collection, the Street Department will take them.
