City projects approved with new limits


Follow The Republic:


COLUMBUS, Ind. — Columbus Mayor Kristen Brown received approval for more than $7.5 million in capital improvement projects, like she wanted, but with City Council-imposed spending restrictions she opposes.

The council Tuesday approved 55 projects totaling $7,560,020 for 2013. However, the council also passed an amendment that requires projects exceeding the greater of 105 percent or $5,000 of the estimated cost to gain council approval.

Friction about oversight of the capital spending projects caused a terse verbal exchange between the mayor and Councilman Jim Lienhoop at the Nov. 20 meeting.
