Bartholomew County is creating a county redevelopment commission.
County Commissioners Carl Lienhoop and Rick Flohr Tuesday approved the first reading of an ordinance creating the Bartholomew County Department of Redevelopment and the Bartholomew County Redevelopment Commission.
Commissioner Larry Kleinhenz was not at the meeting.
The new redevelopment commission will consist of three members appointed by the commissioners, two members appoint by the county council and a member from the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corp.
