Special Meeting to Address Open Door Concerns

(La Porte County, IN) - The hiring of a new La Porte County Building Commissioner is being called into question.  There are allegations of nepotism and the hiring being decided behind closed doors.


To address those concerns, a special meeting of the La Porte County Plan Commission has been called for tomorrow.   The nine member LCPC will decide whether the new building commissioner stays or if another vote should be taken on the three applicants for the job.  The newly hired building commissioner is one of the applicants.  “The nine members should decide on how they want to handle these concerns and issues,” said Tony Hendricks, President of the La Porte County Plan Commission.  The meeting tomorrow is scheduled for 6 p.m. 


Mike Polan was hired to replace his mother, Annemarie Polan who retired.  Polan has many years of prior experience with the La Porte County Drainage Board and the La Porte County MS4 program.  The MS4 program deals with matters involving things like septic systems.
