With the council's approval the Highway Department is ready to move forward on hiring an engineer. "I am going to advertise this position as quickly as possible," said Cornelius. "I would like to get the new engineer hired right after the first of the year."
If that happens the county engineer should be in place to find out what the state and federal government have in mind for the Odon-Cannelburg Road project. An announcement on the county's application on the project is expected in mid-January.
