Presentation of power plant agreements moved to December

LMU super: More time needed for negotiations

(Continued)

John Molitor, an Indianapolis-based attorney working as special counsel for the city, said while the ordinance states negotiations must conclude by the end of the year, the other requirements can come afterward. The presentation, any committee meetings, public hearing and city council votes on the agreements can take place in the months that follow, he said.

The Indiana Supreme Court is currently considering the validity of the ordinance authorizing the negotiations in a lawsuit first filed in Cass County Superior Court II by Logansport citizen Julie Kitchell.

Molitor, who represented city council in the case, said he would be surprised if a ruling wasn’t made by the end of November.

Logansport Councilman Bob Bishop, a supporter of the power plant project, said he expects council members and the public will have a month or two to consider the contracts after they are finished.

“It’s going to be a pretty good-sized agreement,” he said. “They can’t bring that to us expecting a vote on it in a couple days.”
