Mayor Graham Updates Kiwanis

Mayor Bill Graham from Scottsburg, recently attended the Scottsburg Kiwanis Club dinner meeting at the Roadhouse USA to provide an update on projects and goals for Scottsburg.  He talked about ongoing projects, especially road work and the efforts to improve the sewer pipes and distribution system.  He also discussed the renovation necessary for the water treatment plant to fix problems and improve capacity from 1.35 million gallons to 2.25 million gallons a day.  These repairs are critical and the renovation will allow us to plan for economic growth in Scottsburg.  The paving projects and especially the work on the intersection of IN 56 and US 31 was discussed.  Work should be complete in October and will result in a smoother flow of traffic.  Mayor Graham talked about all the efforts to provide job training at MASP to support industry and manufacturing in Scottsburg.  He talked about the quality in our schools and health care.  He emphasized the importance of continuing to make improvements in our infrastructure to promote economic growth.  Mayor Graham talked about the expansion being planned at SAMTEC which could bring up to 300 new jobs.  He talked about the priority of building new, affordable housing to facilitate our economic growth.  The members enjoyed the discussion and thanked the Mayor for his presentation.  Mayor Graham is running for reelection this year.  

Our next nonprofit session!


Our next nonprofit session will be held Thursday, Sept. 5 from 11-1 at the Lifelong Learning Center. June Miller will lead us in “Crucial Conversations: Learn to Successfully Navigate the Conversations You Are Avoiding.” Learn the concepts from the best-selling book, Crucial Conversations, by Vital Smarts, on how to have the difficult conversations at work, at home, or in just about any setting, to improve your results. Whether it is a co-worker who is holding you back because he/she is not living up to commitments, a spouse who is spending beyond your budget or a boss who is sending mixed messages, you will gain the understanding and skills to successfully address these issues with candor and respect…and improve your results!

The cost is $10 per person and includes lunch. Feel free to invite other staff, board members, etc. Please let me know by Wednesday, Sept. 4 if you would like to attend.

Thank you!
