“The county cannot afford to fund both,” he said. “We can’t expect the taxpayers to pay for it twice. Some type of agreement is going to have to be worked out.”
CLEDO and Cass County representatives met Tuesday, when the possible foundation of such an agreement may have been laid. Hipskind said county officials presented CLEDO with an option, the details of which he declined to comment on until the matter can be discussed with CLEDO’s board. He said the board and Cass officials are working to schedule an executive session sometime next week.
“There will be much more of a statement next week,” Hipskind said.
CLEDO, formerly named Logansport-Cass Economic Development Foundation, filed its articles of incorporation with the state in 1984.
