MEETINGS TODAY

The Cass County Plan Commission is scheduled to meet this morning at 8:30 a.m. It’s the first time the group has met since January. The Cass County Commissioners will meet today at 1 p.m. The meeting was rescheduled due to the fact that Monday was a holiday. The Logansport City Council’s monthly meeting has been moved to Monday, Sept. 10 due to the holiday.

SPLASH PAD STAYING OPEN

The Logansport Parks & Recreation Department had previously announced that the Splash Pad would close on Labor Day, but on Friday they announced that due to the predicted hot temperatures, it will remain open for another week.
