TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - Tippecanoe County Child Services is getting another case worker.
Tippecanoe County Commissioners approved Monday the de-authorization of a receptionist position and the addition of a case worker position for Child Services.
Tippecanoe County Prosecutor Pat Harrington said the case workers will be trained on receptionist activities and rotate through that position.
Harrington said while this technically is a new position, it's nothing new to current case workers.
"In reality this was not much of a change," said Harrington. "Our cases workers are now at the front window, they're answering the public questions and they're answering the phones. It's more or less bringing up the actual position to what they're doing."
The Commissioners also approved several speed limit changes throughout the county:
- Extended the existing 45 MPH zone on Jackson Highway (between State Road 26 to County Road 475 West) to 3,400 feet West of County Road 475 West (1,400 feet West of the curve). It then changes the remaining existing 55 MPH zone to 50 MPH.
- Established a new 40 MPH zone on County Road 475 West from Jackson Highway to US 52.
- Added the existing 30 MPH posting on Solders Home Road from Overlook Drive to Prophets Drive to the ordinance schedule table and established a new 35 MPH zone from Lorene Place to State Road 43 (the hill).
- Added the existing 40 MPH posting on County Road 450 North (added as part of the Hoosier Heartland Highway construction changes) from 800 feet East of County Road 625 East to Buck Creek Town Limits.
