DAYTON, Ind. (WLFI)— A planned subdivision in Dayton raised some new questions for members of the Dayton United Methodist Church. Members wanted to know if they are responsible for the costs of the utility lines running into the upcoming Baker Farms Subdivision.

Dayton Town Council member Ron Koehler wanted to know who is funding this.

"Every once in a while someone says 'Oh they're going to pay for it,'" said Koehler. "Or is 'this person's going to pay for it,' and nobody really knows. No one ever commits."

According to the Area Plan Commission, the developer M&C Development will be covering the costs. Plans for the annexation of the land were approved, including the subdivision with the town's sanitary sewer and water.

"This has been going on for a year and a half and nobody really knows," said Koehler. "I'm on the town council and I was a town clerk for 12 years and I don't even know who's paying for it."

WLFI spoke to members of the church. They wanted to know if they were responsible for the utility charges.
Tippecanoe Area Plan Commission Assistant Director Ryan O'Gara said there shouldn't be any confusion.

Off-site mains are also needed for an easement along the east side of Dayton Road and will require approval from the Dayton United Methodist Church.

"If an extension needs to occur, it's always on the developer's dime," said O'Gara. "Once that infrastructure is constructed and complete they then turn it over to the locality for maintenance and perpetuity."

Church members were concerned they would have to pay for these changes but said if they don't have to, they would be open to the idea.
