CITY TO RENAME STREET FOR COUPLE'S CONTRIBUTION TO VETERANS PARK

(Richmond, IN)--Richmond Common Council will meet Monday night and will again take up a proposed rate hike for Richmond Power and Light.  RP&L has not had a rate increase in 16 years, but needs one now in part to help dispose of coal ash at a cost estimated to be as high as $55 million.  Council will also consider a resolution to rename Johnson Street, which leads into the gorge, to “Geobel Way” to honor the contributions of Joseph and Barbara Geobel to the Veterans Park.
