On January 29, 2019, NOW, Inc. filed a “Petition for Rehearing” with the Indiana Court of Appeals in regard to the sale of Charlestown’s water utility. NOW argues that the Court of Appeals reached their conclusion to support the sale of Charlestown’s water utility to Indiana American Water in error. In their petition, NOW asks that the Court reconsider its ruling and allow the voters of Charlestown to decide “yes or no” if the sale of the utility should go forward. NOW bases their request on an argument that the Court of Appeals misapplied a section of Indiana Code in the process of reaching its decision.
