A vote will be held tonight at the Dubois city council meeting about consolidating Sandy Twp. And Dubois into one governing body. Chelsea Johnson has more on what the Dubois city manager is saying about that. This consolidation has been a conversation for many years here. Herm Suplizio city manager says it is time we that bygones be bygones and do what is best for the citizens of Sandy Township and Dubois. The Sandy Township municipal building is less than 2 miles from Dubois's city council office and that is even more of a reason to consolidate and he says consolidation has been on the ballot three times. It has always passed in dubois but says residence in sandy township did not agree with the idea. He believes this consolidation proposal will help increase economic development in both areas. But first city council has to be on board. If city council is on board, he says the next steps are to conduct a study to figure out the best way to move forward. "I think both managers will get together and hopefully we will sit down with the eced and figure out how the proper way, maybe we could get some funding for a study and move on, move forward with the study and go from there." Dubois city council will vote on whether or not to consolidate with sandy twp.during tonight's city council meeting.
