City Council to redo overpass funding vote

The Columbus City Council will be taking a mulligan on the second reading to approve the transfer of $10 million to INDOT for the overpass project taking traffic into downtown over the railroad tracks at State Road 11 and Jonathan Moore Pike.

Mary Ferdon, the city’s director of administration, calls the measure, scheduled for Tuesday night, a “formality.” She explains that because of the type of non-reverting fund created for this money, it was originally believed the appropriation did not need to be advertised. However, city officials realized the appropriation should have been advertised. Ferdon notes that the ordinance appropriating the funds did not change.

City Council meets Tuesday night at 6 p.m. at City Hall.
