LAGRANGE – Over the last two-and-a-half years 139 accidents involving buggies and 13 involving bicycles were investigated in LaGrange County.

An effort targeting long term improvement in those numbers came before LaGrange County Commissioners this (Monday) morning.

Parkview LaGrange Hospital's Jen Will told the commissioners a program called Complete Streets would recommend policies to bring about that improvement by conducting an assessment of the county and recommending ways to ensure that the entire right-of-way provides safe access for all users.

Will says the goal is to enhance safety and quality of life in ways that also help promote tourism.

She's been working with the Amish Safety Committee on educational programs for bicycle safety.

The commissioners agreed to contribute $2,000 towards the cost of the Complete Streets assessment, which would cost between $8 to 10,000. Will plans to seek support from other community organizations and perhaps grants.

In other business, the commissioners authorized the county attorney to begin a title search for the property at the northeast corner of 100 South and Townline Road in order to launch a nuisance action against the owner.
