North Judson Fills Vacancies, Makes Police Department Moves

The former First Farmers Bank and Trust building on Lane Street in North Judson will soon be the town hall.

The North Judson Town Council has filled the vacant positions on each of their boards and commissions.

During a meeting last night, the Board said those positions include spots on the Plan Commission and Board of Zoning Appeals. The Council asks for recommendations from current board members for individuals interested in serving on one of the boards.

North Judson Clerk-Treasurer Donna Henry says the commission positions are on a rotation.

“They are each five member boards, and each term is for two years, and they’re staggered, like you know, three of the members are for one two-year term and then the following year, you know, two members are for another term,” says Henry.

The Town also took a few steps forward for the Police Department as well.

A new police vehicle was agreed to be purchased as part of the Town’s vehicle replacement schedule. A police car was purchased just last year, but last night’s vote to purchase was a continuation of that schedule.

A new K-9 unit is also now allowed join the police department. The Town of North Judson has been working for some time to bring a K-9 unit on board.
