LaGrange County Commissioners appointed a committee to study the application of the Michiana Event Center (MEC) for Major Moves money Monday.
Members of the committee include one county commissioner (Larry Miller) three county councilpersons (Charles Ashcraft, Fred Brown and Ryan Riegsecker) and Economic Development Corporation Director Keith Gillenwater. Gillenwater is to act as the facilitator of the group.
The MEC group made a presentation at a joint council-commissioner meeting April 30 asking for a grant of $3,267,000 from the Major Moves Fund.
“We need this group to set up procedures and make recommendations for this and other potential projects,” said Commission President George Bachman.
