Thanks for progress and good news

What a knockout gorgeous county we live in. Tourists come here to explore our many covered bridges, Rickwood Caverns, Palisades Park, the Locust Fork River, and much more. Having a county commission with foresight to recognize the social, cultural, environmental, and economic benefits tourism provides to our citizens and county is a blessing and a boon for our future.

I read with great excitement the news of the “modest breakthrough” Chairman Chris Green reported that will allow “the county the option to provide public access to the Locust fork River and proceed with the scenic overlook project (north side of the U.S. 231 bridge).”

Thank you Chairman Green and commissioners!
