The current cold snap has ended the warmer than average winter Indiana had been experiencing this year; The state is moving toward allowing Sunday alcohol sales but possibly with more restrictions that will apply to all liquor sales every day; and the construction of a long-debated recycling facility is moving forward, but not without further complications in the process.
A six-and-a-half-hour Bloomington Plan Commission meeting last week included discussion about a new parking garage proposed in downtown Bloomington. The 268-space garage would serve County employees. The 9-story garage would be next to the Monroe County Jail. The County has proposed making the garage an emergency jail evacuation center and potentially a space for a work release program. Members of the group, Decarcerate Monroe County, raised concerns about the facility to the Plan Commission. The Plan Commission did not vote on the parking garage proposal last week. The Commission is scheduled to consider the idea again in March.
