When the Lafayette Park Board voted in January to close the municipal golf course, there were no future plans for the site. Now, seven firms have come forward to show interest in making the property an asset to the Greater Lafayette area. The Wabash River Enhancement Corporation board received potential project plans Thursday morning.

Executive Director Stan Lambert says the companies are well known and have done quality work with other developments. However, he thinks working with a riverfront project is unique.

Tippecanoe County officials are moving forward with plans to use a new company to handle hazardous waste removal.

Commissioners gave a preliminary vote last month to disband from the Wildcat Creek Solid Waste District, which currently handles hazardous waste disposal.

Monday, they gave preliminary approval for a contract with Southside Landfill out of Knightstown to handle the service for four-thousand-dollars a month.
