It was a 90+ minute marathon session that went round and round which finally arrived at a point at which there was no agreement.
"We're at an impasse," summed up Dave Cheatham, representing the City of Madison Port Authority (CMPA).
And so it was as the North Vernon City Council adjourned their discussion on how to handle the proposed pedestrian crossing in the center of Stellar Plaza directly across from the Park Theatre.

Stellar crossing puts railroad, city at odds; annexation takes first step to being reality
A final agreement between the Madison Railroad and the City of North Vernon on the Madison Avenue Stellar work is now in the hands of attorneys. At the last City Council meeting, Cathy Hale, director of the Madison Port Authority, told the Council they should talk only to her board's attorney about resolving the issue of sidewalks to Walmart.
Now, the Council has directed their attorney to follow this direction to resolve a nagging Stellar issue which threatens to delay and, in the worst scenario, topple the project which would upgrade Madison Avenue, its intersection with East O&M Ave. and the one-block length of Fifth Street between the CSX track and the Stellar Plaza.

Council divided on hiring of new police officer
The question of reducing the number of police officers in the City of North Vernon was put to a vote at the City Council meeting Wednesday night.
By a vote of 3-2 the Council voted to keep their police department at its present level, the first time such a question was ever put to a vote, at least in recent years.
The issue arose when Police Chief James Webster announced that officer Justin Black, a three-year veteran of the department, had resigned and was taking a position with the Columbus police department where he would immediately receive a $13,000 raise.
