STC members listen to citizen concerns


Wolf stressed, “I understand everyone’s point, but there’s a fine line you have to walk before you do anything, and I said I would talk to people about their trash cans.”

Neil Bowers revealed, “I’ve talked to Jared and Bill about how a lot of people have told me about crime and drugs in town.”

The marshal emphasized, “And what did I tell you? I’m tired of sidewalk gossip.”

Bowers announced, “Any citizen who sees or suspects anyone selling drugs or doing something illegal should report it to the Sunman Police Department or sheriff’s department.”

Ruth Riehle asked, “What is our water being tested for?”

The president remarked, “We have annual reports that go out to all of our utility users.” Riehle requested a copy.

Diane Raver can be contacted at or 812-934-4343, Ext. 114.
