Demolition Order Tabled, Changes Made to WECS Ordinance


Pulaski County Building Inspector Dave Dare and David Weber presented a demolition order for an unsafe property on U.S. 421 in Francesville but it was tabled as property owner, Lawrence Sears, could not be located and wasn’t properly notified of the order.

Dare said he attempted certified mail and a response was not delivered. A public advocate for Sears said that he has not been able to respond due to a medical issue and the commissioners voted to table the order for 90 days until Sears has a chance to properly respond.

Dare also presented information about changes made to some wording in the Wind Energy Convergence System (WECS) ordinance. Changes were made to definitions of a wind energy convergence system, a wind farm and the fee schedule.

The commissioners approved the changes and a copy of the ordinance can be found here: (changes are in red) Wind Energy Convergence System Ordinance
