Aaron C. Bourlard Introduction

Go to the address below to see original…


Hello, my name is Aaron Bourlard, and I’m running for Bicknell City Council, Councilman at Large. I have sent you this letter to introduce myself. I hope I can count on your support in this important election.
I have been a resident of Bicknell my entire life. I grew up on the south side of Bicknell and still live there today. I have been married to a wonderful woman, Amanda, for five years and I have two beautiful daughters, Isabella, who is five, and Vanessa, who is four. Isabella will start kindergarten at North Knox Primary this fall.
I graduated from North Knox High School in 1999. During high school, I was a member of Business Professionals of America (BPA) where I was elected to the office of Vice President my sophomore year, and President my senior year. During my time in BPA, I competed in district, state, and national competitions in the area of international business. I competed in the national competition three of my four years. I was also a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and a member of the only track team in school history to win a sectional.
After high school, I attended Vincennes University and earned an Associate’s of Applied Science degree in Computer Integrated Manufacturing/Robotics in 2002. I then earned an Associate of Science degree in Fire Science and Safety Technology in 2008. I also earned the Top Gun Award in Weapons of Mass Destruction from the Homeland Security Division in May of 2008. I am a graduate of the Indiana Law Continue reading

Freelandville Water

The water lines that are being installed between Bicknell and Freelandville is to pipe water from Bicknell to Freelandville; I understand that it will be called Freelandville water. They tell me that the Bicknell water will replace the Knox County water in Freelandville.

I think that selling water it a good move as Bicknell residents need utility income which will hopefully allow rates to lower; now they should go see Freelandville, Edwardsport, Johnstown and Ragsdale for sewer additions.

Thanks Steve for your response.  We know most of the decisions need to be made by the Mayor and the Council together and they need to hash out what they really want the funds spent on; we only added the Board of Works so that you and Max are both aware of what’s going on before you end up in a meeting being bombarded with invoices that you can’t approve because funds were not appropriated, or no longer available because they were spent on other items, or before you sign any other contracts for projects that can’t be funded because the monies have already been used up.
We just don’t want everyone thinking there is plenty of money to go around when in reality there isn’t and we wind up again with a major deficit to try and recoup.  Too many projects are being dedicated to the EDIT fund.  So either they wait on some of the projects, find other ways to fund them, or find more cost effective ways to get what they want.

Thanks again, have a good weekend.

Well for the third time today I will try to reply if my phone will send this.
I have read your email and though I can empathize what you are feeling but the BOW is not the part you need to speak to on this issue. This is something that needs to be spoken Continue reading
