In case you missed it:

  1. Wednesday, the exchange students from Motegi, Japan arrived in Speedway as part of the Speedway Motegi Friendship! They are each staying with host families in Speedway for the rest of the week. You might see them around town!
  2. Our water department needs your help. We’ve had issues with someone dumping large amounts of oil into our sewage system causing the cost of water treatment to rise significantly. The local businesses that utilize the type of oil have been checked and no issues have been found. We believe the dumping is occurring sometime between Friday evening and Sunday, based on when it’s arriving at the treatment facility. If you see a truck that appears to be connecting to our sewage system, please call the Speedway Police Department. Thank you for your help with this issue!
  3. Town Council will meet on Monday, August 26th at 7:00pm in Speedway Town Hall. Speedway Town Council Meeting <- Keep track of upcoming meetings here.
  4. Construction is wrapping up on our local projects. Crews will be out tomorrow (8/24) finishing up concrete work on Buick. The final paving will take place from 8/26-8/29. Please read our most recent Construction Notice for more updates on local projects and Indy DPW’s Crawfordsville Rd. project:
  5. We continue to monitor the development of the Hilton Tapestry Hotel on Main Street. The developer, architect, and their contractors are still working on updating construction plans. The developer and the project remain in compliance with the economic development agreement timeline. Our administrative staff has regular contact with the developer and will continue to monitor their progress, however there has not been a date set for construction crew to resume on-site work yet. We will keep you updated.
