'Roll out the RED CARPET for employees':

March 26, 2007
Doing better than the industry standard just wasn't enough for Lauth Property Group CEO Bob Lauth-not when it came to keeping talented people on the payroll. To his way of thinking, a 35 percent annual turnover rate was unacceptable, even if that's what his competitors were averaging. "It just seemed abysmal to me," Lauth said. So he set out to establish a new standard, investing in employees-called associates at Lauth-and making the development firm a so-called "employer of choice" in...

Better days on the way for museum:

January 1, 2007
Things are improving for Ellen Rosenthal. For more than two years, she kept Conner Prairie on track while a battle raged over control of the Hamilton County living history museum. Now she's leading the institution's rebirth. For the first time since 2000, Conner Prairie finished its fiscal year in the black. Attendance and memberships are up, and fund-raising is recovering after bottoming out at less than $100,000 in 2004. The museum's two newly appointed boards-one to oversee museum operations and...

  1. John, unfortunately CTRWD wants to put the tank(s) right next to a nature preserve and at the southern entrance to Carmel off of Keystone. Not exactly the kind of message you want to send to residents and visitors (come see our tanks as you enter our city and we build stuff in nature preserves...

  2. 85 feet for an ambitious project? I could shoot ej*culate farther than that.

  3. I tried, can't take it anymore. Untill Katz is replaced I can't listen anymore.

  4. Perhaps, but they've had a very active program to reduce rainwater/sump pump inflows for a number of years. But you are correct that controlling these peak flows will require spending more money - surge tanks, lines or removing storm water inflow at the source.

  5. All sewage goes to the Carmel treatment plant on the White River at 96th St. Rainfall should not affect sewage flows, but somehow it does - and the increased rate is more than the plant can handle a few times each year. One big source is typically homeowners who have their sump pumps connect into the sanitary sewer line rather than to the storm sewer line or yard. So we (Carmel and Clay Twp) need someway to hold the excess flow for a few days until the plant can process this material. Carmel wants the surge tank located at the treatment plant but than means an expensive underground line has to be installed through residential areas while CTRWD wants the surge tank located further 'upstream' from the treatment plant which costs less. Either solution works from an environmental control perspective. The less expensive solution means some people would likely have an unsightly tank near them. Carmel wants the more expensive solution - surprise!
