Street department dedication setJune 5, 2019
From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — The public is invited to tour the Huntingburg Street Department’s new home on Friday.
A dedication of the department’s building, at 415 W. 19th St., will be held at 3:30 p.m. An open house will follow, lasting until 6 p.m. City employees will tour the facility between 2 and 3 p.m.
The street department started moving to the new site in April. City officials wanted to move the department from its First Street location, which was in the floodplain. The department was also in need of more space.
Extensive flooding of the department’s building during massive rains in April 2017 expedited the search process.
The city purchased the current site, which was the former Fox Metal and Truss building, in November 2017 for $800,000. Lindsey Construction of Ferdinand was hired in October 2018 to do renovations on the building for the street department’s use for $1,037,000.
Moving the department out of the floodplain is one of the city’s Stellar Community projects.
