Say “NO” to Puppy Mills in Bartholomew County! Please attend the next Board of Zoning Appeals meeting:
Monday, January 22, 2018 7pm City Hall 123 Washington St., Columbus, IN 47201
It is possible the case will be continued to February 26 – we aren’t sure how this will go. We are also preparing to attend the February 26th meeting. As time consuming as this is, if this first puppy mill is permitted, this county will have opened the gates to many more.
Download, Print, Distribute and Sign the petition below. Petitions can be turned in on Thursday Jan 18th at the regularly scheduled BCI Meeting.

Indivisible Support for Students' Proposed Columbus Climate Action Plan - Message from Barry Kastner. Added 6/19/2017
I thank the Bartholomew County Indivisible organization for allowing me to speak at last night's Indivisible meeting. I spoke on behalf of the youth-led "Climate Restoration" team which presented a request to the Columbus City Council for a Climate Action Plan at the City Council meeting on June 8, 2017.
I have attached an outline of my remarks from last night which summarizes the students' presentation to City Council and lists needed "next steps". The members of Indivisible can provide a vital role advocating to City Council members that they deliberate and take action on the students' request. The students' request is that Council put in place a process to create a Climate Action Plan that will lead to a series of projects to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions in municipal operations. The process should include citizen participation, including youth representation, and City representatives who have expertise and responsibilities for municipal operations.
As discussed, your advocating directly to Council members by calls, letters, or face-to-face, or speaking up at City Council meetings during the public discussion segments is needed right now. (We specifically are not requesting at this time broad public appeals, such as Letters to the Editor, which might raise unfavorable resistance.) It would be great if dozens of messages would reach City Council from Indivisible members before the next Council meeting on Tuesday, June 20.
For your convenience, Council contact information is attached.
