MICHIGAN CITY — The contract between the city and Economic Development Corporation Michigan City is on hold after Mayor-elect Duane Parry asked the Board of Public Works & Safety not to approve or consider it until 2020.

“I strongly recommend that you table this item until after the first of the year, until after the new mayor and council take office,” Parry told the board Monday. “It’s inappropriate to encumber incoming elected officials with a service contract that occurs during their term without them being in office.”
