The Chesterton Town Council will meet at 7 p.m. Monday, April 8, at the town hall.

At that meeting, members are scheduled to consider the planned unit development ordinance for Duneland Prairie, the development which John Nekus is proposing to build behind the Chesterton Post Office on South Calumet Road. At its March meeting, the Advisory Plan Commission voted 5-2 to forward the PUD ordinance to the Town Council with an unfavorable recommendation.

Members are also expected to schedule a public hearing for their April 22 meeting on a sewer rate hike recommended by the Utility Service board at its March meeting. The Service Board is proposing the following:

--A 3.01-percent rate hike for the average Chesterton household using 10,000 gallons, increasing the bimonthly bill from $85.84 to $88.42.

--A 5.22-percent rate hike for the Town of Porter. Based on average usage, Porterís monthly payment to the Utility would increase from $56,598.10 to $59,552.34.

--A 5.21-percent rate hike for the Indian Boundary Conservancy District. Based on average usage, the districtís monthly payment to the Utility would increase from $6,523.94 to $6,863.98.

--A 0.66-percent rake hike for Fox Chase Farms residents. A Fox Chase Farms householdís monthly payment to the Utility would increase from $98.53 to $99.18.

In other business, members are scheduled to discuss the renewal of the tax abatement for Chesterton Health Care Properties LLC, d.b.a. Addison Pointe Health & Rehabilitation Center.

Members are also scheduled to hear a petition by Rebuilding Together Duneland for a waiver of building permit fees in connection with the annual Rebuilding Event later this month.

And members are scheduled to adopt the annual Arbor Day Resolution.
