Residents scorn Whitestown plan

Whitestown — Six words summarized the feelings of most of those at a public hearing Friday over Whitestown’s proposal to annex all of Worth Township now outside the town limits, and a part of Perry Township as well.

“We want to be left alone,” said Clint Courtney, a rural Fayette resident who joined about 75 people at the hearing, held in the Whitestown Fire Department’s chilly truck bay while fire engines idled outside.

“There’s nothing that Whitestown can offer us that we don’t already have,” Courtney said.
