Vallonia Indiana to get Flood Plan

The county commissioners plan to tackle the project with local funds and work crews, which will mean a slower pace toward completion.

County Highway Superintendent Warren Martin told commissioners that the county still has a $6,500 grant from the Community Foundation of Jackson County and that those funds could be used to buy land for a retention pond on the east side of State Road 135 at Vallonia.
