Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Proposed upgrades to three of the state’s correctional facilities will be among the items considered during Wednesday’s meeting of the Indiana State Budget Committee.

On the agenda are projects submitted by the Indiana Department of Correction for the Putnamville facility in Greencastle, the Pendleton Correctional Facility in Pendleton and the Chain O’Lakes Correctional Facility in Albion.

 The requested repairs to the Putnamville facility and the associated costs are as follows:

$361,607 to update the alarm systems in nine occupied buildings;
$473,000 to replace the high-voltage distribution switch gear system;
$410,000 to make repairs to the masonry of the chapel to reduce further deterioration.

For Pendleton, the department is requesting approval of $526,500 to begin masonry repairs to the administration building and perimeter wall.

At the Chain O’Lakes facility, the department is asking for $283,791 to remediate the former waste water lagoons to meet the requirements of the Indiana Department of Environmental Management. These lagoons were abandoned after the facility consolidated its sanitary sewer system with the DNR’s Chain O’Lakes State Park.

Other projects on the agenda include a request from the House of Representatives of $750,000 to complete several renovation, repair and rehabilitation projects in the House chambers and offices. These projects include painting and carpet replacement as well as repairing and replacing equipment and furniture.

The committee is schedule to meet at 2 p.m. in the Corporate College Culinary Center, Room 118, on the Meridian campus of Ivy Tech Community College in Indianapolis.

  2. It's an appreciable step taken by the government to curb the child abuse that are happening in the schools. Employees in the schools those are selected without background check can not be trusted. A thorough background check on the teachers or any other other new employees must be performed to choose the best and quality people. Those who are already employed in the past should also be checked for best precaution. The future of kids can be saved through this simple process. However, the checking process should be conducted by the help of a trusted background checking agency(https://www.affordablebackgroundchecks.com/).

  5. My parents took advantage of the fact that I was homeless in 2012 and went to court and got Legal Guardianship I my 2 daughters. I am finally back on my feet and want them back, but now they want to fight me on it. I want to raise my children and have them almost all the time on the weekends. Mynparents are both almost 70 years old and they play favorites which bothers me a lot. Do I have a leg to stand on if I go to court to terminate lehal guardianship? My kids want to live with me and I want to raise them, this was supposed to be temporary, and now it is turning into a fight. Ridiculous
