Meet the Editor of the News-Mirror|
Jim Master, editor of the News-Mirror, will be at the Argos and Bourbon Public Libraries once a week starting Wednesday, Aug. 9. Due to not having a local office in either town, the News-Mirror and the public libraries are working together to provide a space where Jim will be available to the public during the following hours: Argos Public Library on Wednesdays from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Bourbon Public Library on Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The public are invited to come and meet with the editor to discuss local events, stories, or any other business that might be of interest to the News-Mirror. The News-Mirror covers events, meetings, and other areas of interest for the towns of Argos and Bourbon.
|Bourbon Comprehensive Plan The Town of Bourbon is in the process of developing the Town’s 2030 Comprehensive Plan. This Plan is the guiding policy document that establishes a community-wide vision and values and analyzes the current conditions and needs to develop specific policies and strategies to guide the Town towards a realization of its vision. The Comprehensive Plan will guide Bourbon residents, Town leaders, and other key decision makers on future decisions related to transportation, housing, parks and recreation, utilities, public school and library, safety, and quality of life. Now we need to hear from you! This Plan will not be successful or meaningful unless it reflects the goals of its community residents. Therefore, it is crucial that we get as many community residents as possible engaged in this process. One of the ways to achieve this goal is for you to fill out the online survey provided in the link below. Access the online public survey here, “ Bourbon Comprehensive Plan Public Input Survey”. Other ways you may access the survey is utilizing the Public Library’s computers to fill it out online or you may pick up a hard copy at the Public Library or Town Hall. Hard copies must be returned to Kim Berger at Town Hall. Please answer the questions to the best of your ability and knowledge. Answers are confidential, anonymous, and are only used for statistical purposes. Thank you for taking the time in participating in this survey!|
Bourbon, Indiana, is located in east central Marshall County in Bourbon Township,
at the junction of State Highway 331 and US 30 in the heart of TROJAN COUNTRY. The town of Bourbon was laid out in 1853 when
it was certain the railroad would be extended to that point.
It took its name from Bourbon Township, which was named after Bourbon County,
Kentucky, the former home of many of the early settlers. According to the 2010 census, Bourbon has a total area of 0.99 square miles.
The Bourbon Community Building-Gymnasium was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2015.
Although Bourbon has experienced phenomenal growth over the years it has maintained the quality of life associated with a small town rural atmosphere. Our motto "Small Town, Big Heart" says it all!
