(Richmond, IN)--Richmond Common Council had a relatively brief meeting Monday night. In it, Gary Turner was elected Council President for 2019 with Ron Oler named Vice President. Council also got an update on progress at the old Reid Hospital site. Brooks Bertyl from the company that’s doing the work talking about what’s happened in the last two months. "The contractor has completed concrete crushing activities, completed back-filling activities of all the remaining basements, completed all asphalt parking lot removal, and completed site-grading activities." Bertyl said the work is ahead of schedule and is 98-9% done. All that’s left to do is some seeding, and wet weather has prevented that.
