Back To Front Page


The Chesterton Town Council will meet at 7 p.m. Monday at the town hall.

At the meeting members are scheduled to consider an ordinance which would set refuse and recycling collection rates for the next three years. The proposed monthly rates (including the regular $1 fee for brush collection: 2018, $16.38; 2019, $16,69; and 2020, $17.00. Chesterton households are currently paying $16.38 per month (including the $1 fee). Those rates include the two 95-gallon rollaway containers provided free of charge by Able Disposal, one for trash and one for recycling.

In other business, Street Commissioner John Schnadenberg will provide an update on the Community Crossings 50/50 grant which the town applied for. That grant, if awarded, would be used to pave South Calumet Road between Porter Ave. and the Chesterton Post Office and Wabash Ave. between North Calumet Road and Waverly Road (and Waverly Road north to Woodlawn Ave.).

Meanwhile, members will hear of a new opening on the Advisory Plan Commission, following the resignation of Robert Poparad, who is moving out of town.

The council will also hear an unspecified request for the temporary placement of a banner; another request from the developer of the Pumpkin Patch on Indian Boundary Road--where the former Applebee’s restaurant is located--to turn over the current privately owned Sand Creek Drive North to the town: and a report of the proceeds of the town’s annual municipal auction, held earlier this month.

Redevelopment Commission

Earlier in the evening, at 6:30 p.m., the Redevelopment Commission will hold its regular monthly meeting.

At that meeting members will hear in update on the Gateway Blvd. reconfiguration and the East Porter Ave. bridge replacement projects.
