(BEDFORD) - Kim Allen is the new assistant director for the Lawrence County Economic Growth Council.
Allen will replace Marla Jones who is heading Bedford's Stellar Award team.
Jones says 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 salary will be paid with grant money from the Stellar award.
