Austin Man Sentenced To 270 Days In Jail For Threatening School Bus Driver

Charles Linne

An Austin man will remain incarcerated for the next several months for verbally assaulting a Scott County School District 2 bus driver last fall.
On Nov. 6, 2020, Charles C. Linne, 35, of North 4th Street in Austin approached a Scott County School District 2 bus during its normal route. “The bus was in the process of dropping students off after their school day, and it was still occupied by some of the students,” said Scott County Prosecutor Chris Owens. “From just outside the door of the bus, Mr. Linne loudly threatened the bus driver who remained seated at the steering wheel. Linne was upset because of an incident that occurred on a previous day.”
Scott County School District 2 buses are equipped with audio/video recording equipment and these actions were caught on camera.
Owens filed charges on Nov. 13, and a warrant was issued for Linne’s arrest. Officers with the Austin Police Department arrested Linne on the warrant on Nov. 16, and he has remained in Scott County Jail since that time.
Court records show Linne has prior convictions for violation a protective orders to prevent domestic violence.
Owens reported that last Thursday, Feb. 4, Linne pled guilty to intimidation as a Level 6 Felony and was sentenced by Scott Circuit Court Judge Jason Mount to 270 days to be served in the Indiana Department of Correction.
“We cannot tolerate threats being made to employees of our school systems, and The Scott County Prosecutor’s Office will vigorously pursue action against those who make such threats,” said the prosecutor. “I hope that this result will curtail not only Mr. Linne from behaving this way in the future, but that it will prevent others from acting this way as well.”

Multi-Color Corporation To Expand Scottsburg Plant; Add 30 Jobs

Multi-Color Corporation, one of the largest label manufacturers in the world, has announced plans to expand their manufacturing plant in Scottsburg. Multi-Color, located on US 31 on the city’s far south side, produces labeling for the beverage, wine and spirits, food and dairy, personal care and beauty, home care and laundry, healthcare, durables and technical and automotive and chemical industries.
Company representatives were appear before the Scottsburg City Council this past Monday to seek tax incentives for a $7.7 million expansion and add around 30 new jobs.
“The City of Scottsburg is excited about Multi-Color Corporation’s current success and the possibility of the company expanding its capabilities to accommodate this new phase of its business,” said Scottsburg Mayor Terry Amick. “The capital investment of $7.7 million in its facility here is a big win for the city and the region as a whole. We look forward to working with Multi-Color Corporation on their proposal and in the years to come.”
Multi-Color Corporation is a leader in global label solutions with more than 103 years of experience. The company supports a number of the world’s most prominent brands including leading producers of home and personal care, wine and spirits, food and beverage, healthcare and specialty consumer products.
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Multi-Color Corporation up to $425,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning the company is eligible to claim incentives once Hoosiers are hired.
“We’re excited to support Multi-Color Corporation’s Scottsburg expansion,” said Indiana Secretary of Commerce Jim Schellinger. “Being a global company, Multi-Color Corporation had a world of options to expand, but we’re grateful the company chose to expand its Indiana operations and create more career opportunities for Hoosiers.”
President and CEO of One Southern Indiana Wendy Dant Chesser said, “1si is happy to be working in support of the Scott County Economic Development Corporation and Multi-Color Corporation on this exciting expansion. The fact the company is considering an expansion in Scottsburg is a good economic indicator for the city, county, and the region. 1si stands ready to assist in any way we can.”
Multi-Color Corporation is a 105 year old company headquartered in Batavia, Ohio with additional plants in Cincinnati and Scottsburg.

Scottsburg Seeking Bids To Re-Pave 31 Streets

In December, the City of Scottsburg was awarded $981,286 for local road projects through Community Crossings, a component of the Governor’s Next Level Roads program. Hoping to get contracts signed early to lock in work during the summer paving season, Mayor Terry Amick is wasting little time seeking bids to re-surface portions of 31 streets in the city.
A legal notice seeking bids is found on page 5 of this week’s Times and can be found on the newspaper’s online edition at www.crothersvilletimes.com
“We are projected to pave about a third of our city streets in 2021,” Amick said.
He said the following streets are scheduled to be paved with this round of funding:
Weir Rd., Jefferson St., Lakeview Dr., Crystal Gail Hts., Davis St., Wardell St., Chipaway Ln., Terrell St., Owens St.
York Rd., Harrison St., Washington St., Beechwood Ave., South St., Hazzard St., Northfield Dr., Smith St., Walnut St.
Hiram Boswell Rd., Ray St., Fairground Rd., Honeyrun Pkwy., Green St., Larry Ln., Bellevue Ave., 3rd St., Newman St., Spring St., Opal Dr., Cherry St., Madison St.
Bids will be opened at 11 a.m. on Monday, March 8, and awarding of the paving contract is expected at that evening’s regular city council meeting at 6 p.m.
According to Scottsburg Street Department Field Administrator Jill Baker, the paving contract will c all for paving to begin no later than June 1 and all streets completed by November 1.
The City of Scottsburg will be supplying a 25% financial match for the 31-street project.
The Community Crossings Initiative has provided more than $830 million in state matching funds for construction projects.
At the same time as the city of Scottsburg grant award, Scott County, while Baker was County Highway Superintendent, was awarded a $866,372 Community Crossings grant.

Crothersville Seeks To Re-Establish Capital Development Fund

A fund used to pay for some capital improvement projects could be re-established at a higher level as a result of approval of the Crothersville Town Council at their regular meeting last Tuesday.
The current Cumulative Capital Development property tax rate inside the town limits is just over a penny at .0136 cents per $100 of assessed valuation. The town wants to re-establish that rate at a nickel, the rate it was originally.
“Your current rate will bring in $9,000 in 2021,” said Reuben Cummings of Government Finance Consultants, the town’s tax finance advisor. “By re-establishing that rate to it’s original 5¢ will generate $33,000 annually for town improvement projects.”
Unspent funds raised can be allowed to accumulate from year to year.
Cummings said that the increased tax rate would cost about a dollar a month for residential properties assessed at $100,000.
The council unanimously approved holding a public hearing on the matter at the March 2 town council meeting.
In other business, the council held a hearing with the Unsafe Building Board and approved moving forward with razing derelict properties at 301 E. Main Street and 105 Marshall Drive pending court approval.
Cost of razing the structures has been approved art $5,800 each.
The council opted to delay any action of replacing a culvert in front of the Marathon station at 417 S. Armstrong pending a signed permit from INDOT.
