Building Project on U.S. 35 Lacks Permit

A construction project on U.S. 35 north of Knox has several people scratching their head, as no permits have been filed in Starke County nor the city of Knox.

However, despite the lack of filed permits, City Building Administrator Greg Matt said it appears that NIPSCO is building a substation. He explained a permit is required for them to build a substation, and on top of that, plans for the structure must be submitted as well.

Matt said he is going to be looking into the matter further this week to get to the bottom of the confusion.

A spokesperson with NIPSCO told WKVI he was not sure if NIPSCO was building a substation in the area but would investigate further.
