Two appointees named to Housing Authority

Mayor Dave Kitchell has made his first two appointments of the year.

Amber Garrison, a Logansport attorney who was appointed to fill out the term on the Logansport Housing Authority, has been appointed to a full term on the board. She is a practicing attorney.

Kim Purnell has been appointed to fill out an unexpired term on the authority. Purnell is employed with Ruler Foods in Eastgate Plaza.

“We’re grateful to have people who are willing to serve in various capacities in city government, and often serve for multiple terms,” Kitchell said. “Amber assures us that we continue to have an attorney on the authority board. She enjoys serving and I’m glad she’s agreed to serve again.”

Purnell, like Garrison, will serve in a city capacity for the first time.

The authority meets monthly at the Area Five Council on Aging and Community Services building on Smith Street.
