Correction on vote count:
During the last meeting of the New Harmony Town Council on Thursday, Nov. 15, the council voted to terminate the grant-funded trails project, 4-1. No roll call vote was taken, and Town President David Campbell was misunderstood to vote in agreement with the remainder of council. In fact, Campbell was expressing his opposition to the vote. The official vote was 4-1, not 5-0 as had been reported in last week’s story. We regret this error.
