Back To Front Page



The Chesterton Town Council reported at its meeting last night that municipal salary concerns will be addressed at the next meeting.

Council President Lloyd Kittredge, R-2nd, opened the meeting with a statement on the recent calls for bridging employee wage gaps and increasing pay for Chesterton police officers. Kittredge said, “The Council, along with the Town’s financial advisors and legal counsel, is working hard to find a solution for the salary ordinance that will be fair for everyone. Our goal is to have an ordinance for consideration before this Council at the April 9 meeting.”

Town Attorney Chuck Lukmann, for his part, had no report other than that he has been solely focused on the salary ordinance.

No members of the public spoke in response to Kittredge or addressed the Board Monday night.

Street Commissioner John Schnadenberg reported that annual paving projects, including fixing sidewalk trip hazards and cracksealing will begin soon. He said he will provide more detail at a future meeting.

The Council conducted its annual review of the Addison Pointe Tax Abatement to ensure that Addison Pointe is in compliance with its original agreement with the Town. Lukmann reported that Addison Pointe has complied with its agreement to provide at least 120 jobs and hire locally. The Board approved the continuation of the tax abatement on his recommendation.
