City appointments made to building corporation

Last Updated on January 26, 2016 by cassnetwork

Logansport Mayor Dave Kitchell announced today that a city entity that was established in a previous administration will continue.

The Logansport Building Corporation will be led by three one-year appointees, City Councilman Dave Morris, Deputy Mayor Mercedes Brugh and Assistant Plan Director Chris Gaumer, who served on the corporation board last year.
“The corporation acts in much the same way as a school or hospital building corporation and can execute building projects,” Kitchell said. “We may be restructuring this concept in the future to leverage private and public investment under the city’s control, but for now, we will continue the building corporation to deal with several issues. Including a representative from the city administration and the council should ensure that both levels of government are in the loop when it comes to the status of properties we own or are redeveloping.”
