    June 27, 2011 No comments

    The Danville town council approved a settlement offer for a house that was damaged by a storm sewer.

    The owners of a house in the 200 block of Harrison Street have threatened to sue the town over damage to their home caused by a nearby storm sewer.

    Town Manager Gary Eakin said there’s been settling of the house’s foundation, resulting in cracks in walls and the garage floor. Eakin added his office has been in negotiations with the homeowners since December.

    The council approved an offer of $120,000 to the homeowners, to come from the town’s host fund. Council President Jeff Martin was absent from Monday’s meeting.

    In other business, the council also approved a petition to vacate 12 feet of right of way on the west side of Indiana Street across from Dairy Queen. Owners of the parcel, at 55 E. Main St., plan to construct an office building there. The right of way vacation was requested to line up the proposed structure with the eastern edge of the building to its south, which is Hackleman Auto.
