by Kathryn Tschuor There was only one resolution discussed at this week’s regular meeting of the Village of Bluffton’s Town Council. The resolution partially concerned the village’s bike paths. Resolution No. 10-12 states that the village council supports efforts to develop more pedestrian and bike paths in the area and endorses the creation of the Allen County Bike and Pedestrian Task Force. The task force would work to address local safety concerns and make the county more bicycle friendly. Resolution No. 10-12 was given a first reading and passed as an emergency.
