Mayor addresses employment



Mayor Craig Luedeman will recap a year he says was “better than it should have been” and propose changes for how Seymour conducts business in the future when he delivers his annual State of the City address tonight.

The speech will come at the end of a regular city council meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. at City Hall.

“I’ll be talking about some of the projects we finished up this year,” Luedeman said Friday afternoon. “This will be the last time we talk about the Third Street Sewer project and the north extension of Burkart Boulevard.”

Another highlight of 2012, Luedeman said, was the completion of the new Department of Public Works facility in Freeman Field. Operations moved from its former site on East Fourth Street to the new building earlier this year.

“It’s something we made happen in a hurry, but it turned out to be a great move for us,” he said.
