PROTEST BUILDS ALONG IEDC PIPELINE FRONT
There were few, if any, illusions at West Lafayette City Hall Monday night that a city council resolution that took shots at the secrecy and even the audacity of an Indiana Economic Development plan to tap and take Tippecanoe County water for developments several counties away was going to stop anything.
“We all know that,” David Sanders, a West Lafayette City Council member, said moments before a unanimous vote against the IEDC pipeline concept to feed the massive LEAP District developments near Lebanon.
The idea was to start putting opposition into the formal record and put the IEDC and the rest of the state on notice, if for no other reason than to contain the state’s expectations for this water haul and any that follow.
