Mayor Ron Meer has a vacancy to his appointment on the Michigan City Redevelopment Commission and will be serving in that capacity for 2019. “Michigan City is at a crucial time in its’ history. The Redevelopment Commission will be directly involved in major projects, such as NICTD Double Tracking, the retirement of the NIPSCO Generating Station and the development of the former Michigan City Police Station and the News Dispatch properties. These projects will have a substantial impact upon Michigan City’s future and growth and I believe it is important that the residents are represented by their elected official” said Mayor Meer. The City Attorney, along with representatives from Accelerate Indiana Municipalities (AIM), have reviewed this matter thoroughly and have determined that Mayor Meer is able to serve on the Redevelopment Commission. Mayor Meer will not be receiving any compensation for his service.
