The City recently awarded the planned renovation of Central Park to Ziolkowski Construction of South Bend. The project came in slightly under the architects estimate at 4.75 million dollars. Ziolkowski has informed the City that they plan on fencing off the construction area during the week of September 8th. This will essentially close the center of the park until the summer of 2015.
During construction, the Riverwalk will remain open, although there will be ornamental lighting placed on the Pedestrian Bridge which will require intermittent temporary closure of the bridge.
Mishawaka Mayor Dave Wood has announced the appointment of Staff Attorney, Geoffrey Spiess, to the newly created position of Corporation Counsel/Director of Human Resources for the City of Mishawaka. Spiess replaces Corporation Counsel, John Gourley and Human Resource Director, Bonnie Bonham who both retired recently from the City.
