(BEDFORD) - Marla Jones, representing Bedford's Stellar Award team, provided Lawrence County Commissioners Bill Spreen, Chris May and David Flinn with a brief update Tuesday morning at the courthouse.
"I came to give you a proposed time line of our projects," she said. "We'll be meeting next week with the Stellar people to hammer out more details."
Jones said she will be managing Bedford's Stellar effort and three team members to coordinate efforts with the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs, the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority, and the Indiana Department of Transportation.
"But Mayor Shawna Girgis is ultimately in charge of these projects," Jones emphasized. "I will report everything to her." Jones is assistant director of the Lawrence County Economic Growth Council.
May asked Jones if she will be paid for her role with the Stellar projects. "There's money in the grants to cover that," she explained.
Jones said she would return to offer more details on the projects as they became available.
