The Digest


what the snow! ❄️

If you were wishing for snow… well, you may get your wish. We’re looking at another few inches today.

To be a snow event, it needs be 2 inches or more. This means the snowplows and salt trucks should be out today. If you’ve ever wondered how snow plowing is determined, here’s how it’s broken down:

  • Priority 1: Roads that connect public safety facilities throughout the city. So roads near hospitals, fire stations, police stations, etc.
  • Priority 2: Feeder roads. These higher-traffic roads may have schools, parks, and businesses, or act as the primary road within a subdivision.
  • Priority 3: Neighborhood main roads.
  • Priority 4: Short roads/cul-de-sacs
  • Any other road that isn’t in Fishers or is a private road won’t be plowed by the city. You’ll need to contact a 3rd party.

You can use this map to see where each type of road is and when you can expect it to be plowed!

Also, here’s one of my favorite lines from their process for plowing “The City of Fishers does not collect or store snow.” Good to know 🤣

Trash timeline🗑️

Trash timeline proposal
Trash timeline proposal by the City of Fishers

One big thing: The City of Fishers is moving forward with taking bids for a city-wide trash contract. The above picture shows the timeline.

Background: Ray’s being bought by Waste Management opened the flood gates for what’s happening today. Rate increases and poor service compounded over the past year and now the city possibly stepping in.

Timeline: Next month, the city will start taking proposals. Fishers will work to negotiate before having a public hearing in July. If things move forward from there, we could see a city-managed contract starting as early as next year.

> The worst that comes from this is a loss of some administrative time if the public ends up saying no.

The contract needs to be a weekly trash, bi-weekly recycling, leaf/landscaping days, and special needs help. They’re asking for a 5-year contract. You learn more by viewing the full proposal here.

HC Tavern: “It lives up to the hype” 🍽️

Lobster Escargot

I asked ChatGPT the highlights of human achievement. It gave the usual. Invention of the wheel, development of writing, building of the pyramids. Those are all great, but what if it tried the Lobster Escargot at HC Tavern? It’s an achievement in its own right. I have to imagine it would have made the list.

And don’t just take it from us. Here’s what Barbie said after her first visit: “The lobster escargot appetizer was to die for.” Or Greg: “My wife and I are food snobs, and I can confidently say this was some of the best food we’ve ever had. The lobster escargot appetizer is worth every single penny!!”

Crumbl Cookies turns 3 🍪

Crumbl Fishers

The Crumbl in Fishers turned 3 this week 🎉 If you’ve never had them, they’re gigantic cookies with a weekly rotating menu. They’ve developed a cult like following with their signature pink box and style.

Tyson Barrett is the franchise owner of the Fishers location (and others in Indy). He was turned down multiple times by Crumbl’s corporate before they let him open the store. Turns out, it was the best decision both Tyson and Crumbl could have made. The Crumbl Cookies in Fishers is the #1 selling store in the country. With 140 employees and over 200,000 cookies sold, they’ve crushed it. Congratulations Tyson!
