Buy of Pfizer land, dam repairs delayed

TERRE HAUTE — Vigo County park officials expect to close on the purchase of 822 acres from Pfizer early next month.

The county had expected to close on the property Jan. 19.

Park Superintendent Kara Kish on Monday told the Vigo County Parks Board the delay was a paperwork matter.

In other business, Kish told the park board she recommends the 2014 Christmas Walk be held as a one-day event on the first Saturday of December. The event was being held as a two-day event, with the first day held at the same time as the Miracle on 7th Street, which had reduced attendance for the county park event.

Kish also informed the board it will be at least three weeks before a report is completed to determine what measures are needed for a dam at Fowler Park. Frigid weather has delayed some work, and soil borings still need to be analyzed, Kish told the board.

The board retained its 2013 officers for 2014. The board’s Peg Harlan remains as president, Julie Hart as vice president and Eddy Adams as secretary/treasurer.
