Avon Town Council makes road maintenance agreement

Compiled by Peg McRoy 

The Avon Town Council met April 27. Meetings can be viewed on the town’s social media accounts. The council meets at 7 p.m. the second and fourth Thursday of the month at the Avon Town Hall, 6570 E. U.S. 36. The next scheduled meeting is May 11.

What happened: Council approved a service agreement with All Terrain for County Road 100 S roadside maintenance through December 2025. Cost is $33,855. 

What this means: All Terrain will mow the area, apply fertilizer, cut out landscape beds and tree rings, and conduct a fall clean-up. This action amends an already existing contract with All Terrain on the maintenance and landscaping of roundabouts for the town. It was also noted in the agreement that due to fluctuations of gas prices All Terrain reserves the right to add a fuel surcharge at any time. 

What happened: The council approved a $13,440 quote from Mason Private Locating to insert potholes for utilities in the area of Raceway Road and 10th Street. This location is earmarked for a future roundabout.  

What this means: Utilities typically do their own potholing for their facilities. An AT&T location on the northwest corner of this intersection serves as a major hub for the westside of Indiana. AT&T told town officials it may be 12 months before they can pothole it, which would put the town behind schedule on the roundabout. Town Manager Ryan Cannon said this action will save money in the long run because it will avoid utility relocation. 

What happened: Council adopted two ordinances establishing line items to accept restricted and unrestricted opioid funds as the result of the state’s participation in a $26 billion national settlement with opioid distributors and retailers.  

What this means: The town should receive these unrestricted funds over 18 years for the general fund. Restricted funds must be used for opioid remediation purposes purchasing Narcan or police training.
