Violence a presence in 2013 news


6. The Southeast Indiana Health Center, 374 Northside Drive, Suite F, Batesville, opened its doors to patients June 4. Its mission is to provide for the health and wellness needs of residents of Franklin and Ripley counties who are medically uninsured.

The vision for the clinic was first announced in 2011 when Dr. Stephen Glaser approached Margaret Mary Community Hospital leaders. He said, “We have been wanting to do this for a long time .... There were a lot of hoops to jump through to comply with the different regulations,” the newspaper reported June 7.

The clinic is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5-7:30 p.m. The hope is that eventually it will be open weekdays for four to five hours a day. Patients must meet eligibility requirements to take advantage of a wide range of services.

The clinic is staffed by volunteers, including 13-14 physicians. “We do need the help of the community,” Glaser pointed out. Persons wanting to volunteer or see if they are eligible for services can contact SEIHC manager Paul Tyrer at 932-4515.

7. In 2010, Batesville leaders created a 57-acre Tax Increment Financing allocation area located north and south of I-74. A year ago, with O’Reilly Auto Parts, Batesville Urgent Care and Steak ‘n Shake poised to open near the I-74 Batesville interchange, Mayor Rick Fledderman wanted to take advantage of extra property tax dollars they and other future businesses will generate.

At the mayor’s urging, the Batesville Redevelopment Commission, Batesville Advisory Plan Commission and city council voted to expand the TIF area by 398 acres. It includes acreage north of S.R. 46 and east of Batesville High School; north of the first district along S.R. 229 toward Oldenburg, such as the former drive-in, Nobbe estate property and new Margaret Mary physicians center; and the downtown area.

At an April 3 economic development roundtable in Lawrenceburg, the mayor learned the power of TIF. Bed Techs is relocating from Milan to Greendale, which provided $1.5 million in incentives – $500,000 from a Lawrenceburg Regional Economic Development Grant and $1 million from the city’s TIF fund. “At this point, it’s hard for us to compete with that.”
