Location of City Council Meeting Switched

The La Porte City Council meets on Monday but not at City Hall.


The City Council meeting will be at the Healthcare Foundation of La Porte.

During the meeting, Mayor Tom Dermody said there will be a presentation on what the organization does for the city.


“Give them an opportunity to update the community as part of the meeting on all of the great things they are doing to help us become a healthier community,” said Mayor Tom Dermody.


The Healthcare Foundation of La Porte has given over $6 million to the city over the past several years.


The group has also provided more than $20 million for projects in rural areas of La Porte County.


The money has funded projects like trails to give people access to more healthy living options.


The Healthcare Foundation of La Porte is inside a new facility at 140 East Shore Court.


HFL Executive Director Maria Fruth said the organization has more than $200 million in assets or close to double the amount it started with several years ago from proceeds tied to the sale of La Porte Hospital to I-U Health.
