Midday update: Conditions improving but bitter cold cancels Council

CARMEL, IN – Overall conditions are improving in Carmel as the city street department continues to plow all 450 miles of streets. However, the bitter cold temperatures have prompted the Carmel City Council to cancel tonight’s regularly scheduled meeting.

Here are some midday updates:

  • Carmel City Hall is open today to address the needs of local residents, but in limited operations mode with only essential personnel working, alongside any others that could make it in today.
  • Carmel City Council president Eric Seidensticker announced this morning he has decided to CANCEL tonight’s Council meeting. “With temperatures below -10 and wind chill below -40, holding a public meeting does not seem to be prudent as it would put the health and safety of our citizens, staff, and council members at risk,” said Seidensticker. At this time, all items on the agenda will be moved to the next regularly scheduled meeting on Feb 3.
  • Carmel City Court has decided to close its hearings for the day. Those scheduled to appear are not required due to the inclement weather and hazardous weather conditions by order of Judge Brian G. Poindexter. All individuals will be sent their new date to appear by mail. They may inquire by phone at 317-571-2440 as to their new court date.
  • Carmel Fire Department said there were no significant emergency events last night. As of this morning there were eight people in the emergency shelter located at Carmel High School. 
  • Duke Energy is reporting the number of people without power has dropped from about 600 to about 50. Please call 1-800-343-3525 to report a power outage.
