Logansport city appointees will be taking on new responsibilities at the end of this month.
Mark Lowry, 32, a Logansport insurance agent, will begin serving a four-year term on the Logansport/Cass County Aviation Authority Board. He succeeds Tad Wilkinson who has been appointed to serve on the Logansport Municipal Building Corporation. Wilkinson will succeed Carl McPherson.
“We appreciate the work Carl has done for the building corporation, as well as the time he has spent on the Emergency Management Agency Board and the Logansport Board of Public Works and Safety,” Mayor Dave Kitchell said. “Given the potential conflicts of time and any potential conflicts of interest, it’s in our best interest to take some of the burden off Carl’s shoulders and involve more people.”
The mayor said Wilkinson’s background in heating and cooling will be beneficial to the corporation and the city.
“Tad is a former city councilman and he understands the situation facing our city budget,” Kitchell said.
Lowry is a graduate of Logansport High School and St. Joseph College. He and his wife, Melissa, are member of Trinity Lutheran Church and are the parents of three children. He is a member of the Logansport Rotary Club.
The other mayoral appointments on the board are Mark Hildebrandt and Patrick McNarny.
