Striving for Excellence & Revitalizing the First State Capitol!

The Town of Corydon, with a population of 3,122 residents, is located in Harrison County Indiana. Corydon was the first state capital until the legislature made a move to its current location of Indianapolis in 1825.

A word from Bruce:

“The planned closing of our Tyson Foods plant continues to be something we are very concerned about.  Many rumors are flying around, and most are nonsense.  I do know there are interested parties in purchasing the facility and Tyson had an appraisal done to determine the value of the plant and property.  That tells me that they are at least interested in selling the property.  The Town Council is looking at all options to limit the impact of losing Tyson on our residents.

We are making plans for summer construction around town.  We are bidding for the replacement of an old water main crossing Big Indian Creek from Cedar Glade up to Foundation Way.  This replaces a line installed in 1957 that we have leak history with.  This work will be completed during the dry months when the creek flow is down.

The last low head dam on Indian Creek is slated to be removed later this summer by the owner of the dam.  The low head dams were built for water supply and NOT flood control.  Anyone saying otherwise is ill informed.  The town was neither for or against the removal of the dam and had no say in the decision.

We will be upgrading the Settlers Trace sewage lift station this summer.  The station was built in 1997 and is at capacity.  The additional flow from the new Harrison Apartments requires us to install larger pumps and equipment.  The apartment developers are paying a large portion of this upgrade cost.

Speaking of Settlers Trace, we have plans to install a new water tie line from Sky Way DR to Settlers Trace to connect the two water lines.  Should we ever have another water leak like we did last November, we would be able to keep most people in water service.  We do need three new easements from property owners to do this work and we are actively working on gaining their permission.

Another job planned for later this year is the replacement of electrical panels at the old sewer plant.  This equipment was installed on treated lumber in 1993 and the wood is in terrible condition.  Some of these same panels flooded in 1997 and are rusting out.  The cost to replace these panels is ridiculous, but we must make repairs, or the panels will fall over, and the sewer plant will be out of commission.  They are that bad.

We are also planning for sewer main re-lining and manhole rehabilitations in the summer of this year.  The past several years we have worked around town to take care of trouble spots.  This year we are focusing on rehabbing portions of our original sewer system installed in 1939.  Rehabbing this infrastructure is many times cheaper than replacing it and much less destructive.

We are actively working to raise funds with our Skate Park partners:  Harrison County Chamber of Commerce, Main Street Corydon, and the Harrison County Community Foundation.  Anyone wishing to purchase a “brick” or make another donation should contact Lisa Long at the Chamber.  We really appreciate Lisa’s work to assist us with raising funds.  The Town has completed all we can do at the site until it is time to begin construction.

Make sure to check our community calendar on the website for all the events planned in town this year.  Our partners at Mainstreet Corydon have a fabulous list of events ready for you to enjoy.”
