Missed deadline thwarts merger plan

September 9, 2010

Voters will not get to decide this fall if Greenwood and White River Township will merge after lawmakers missed the deadline for turning in proper paperwork. The White River Township board turned in the required papers too late to get the proposal on the November ballot, the Johnson County Election Board ruled Wednesday night. Officials are uncertain if the issue can be put on the ballot in 2012.
