At the beginning of 2013, the organization had projected its total income to be about $200,000.
The board also unanimously agreed that the move by the county to name its own economic development director did not change CLEDO’s mission to develop economic growth for the community.
The board said in a release that it is willing to work with the county director in accomplishing that mission.
“Honestly, we can’t afford to have problems between us,” said Hayden. “We’ve got too many potential clients looking. ... It would be foolish for us to have an adversarial relationship.”
However, since the relationship between CLEDO and the county has changed, the organization’s alias now stands for City of Logansport Economic Development Organization.
The organization invited anyone interested in hearing a recap of the past year and its plans for 2014 to the CLEDO annual meeting at noon Jan. 29, 2014, at Cross-Wind United Methodist Church. For tickets, contact Teresa in the CLEDO office at email@example.com or 574-722-5988. CLEDO will pay the cost of the event for those who call ahead to reserve a seat.
