New Life for Once Doomed Flowers

(La Porte, IN) - Some flowers in downtown La Porte no longer have a short lease on life.  Andrew Killin says his landscaping work will be allowed to stay for the rest of the season.  He says the city’s Business Improvement District recently gave its blessing for the flowers and plants to remain outside his home at Rumely Historic Apartments.


Initially, Killin was given an August 12 deadline to remove the flowers and plants for not seeking permission before doing the landscaping work.  He then went to the Board of Public Works and Safety to have that deadline extended.


Killin says he'll need to appear before the Business Improvement District next month to seek permission to put flowers and plants in the ground in the spring.
