Patoka turns down proposal to merge with Princeton

GIBSON CO., IN (WFIE) -

We have an update on the push to merge Patoka Township with the city of Princeton.

We've learned the Patoka Township Board voted down the proposal.

Princeton Mayor Brad Schmitt told us last month both city boards would have to sign off on the deal for it to become a reality.

We're told a major concern was how the merger would impact Toyota, which is in Patoka Township.

Company officials said property taxes would increase, which could hurt its suppliers and vendors.

So, for now, the deal is off the table.
