Outlet delays raise Culver council ire

October 20, 2011

Virtually unanimous frustration at last week’s meeting of Culver’s town council reflected the prevailing attitude in the Culver community at large, regarding several weeks’ delay in movement on a project originally slated to take three or four days.

Audience member Mike Stallings blamed NIPSCO, whose presence was required at the site to reroute the gas line.
