GRIFFITH — After gaining an additional year to join another township, Griffith is already planning its next move — if its quest to leave Calumet Township continues to stall.
Originally the town had until Nov. 13, 2019, to join St. John Township and Nov. 20 for North Township.
However, Gov. Eric Holcomb recently signed a bill that “effectively gives Griffith two years to enter into a new township,” Council President Rick Ryfa, R-3rd, said.
This gives Griffith until November 2020 to be admitted into one of these two townships.
GRIFFITH — The Town Council has withdrawn its 2016 petition to leave Calumet Township and said it will soon file a new one.
“There is no stopping our effort to leave the township,” Council President Rick Ryfa, R-3rd, said.

Attorneys on both sides of the lengthy annexation battle that involves a 1,017-acre area of unincorporated Clay Township centered at 106th Street and College Avenue are now debating whether Home Place residents receive all the public services they need without assistance from Carmel.
