Fremont Town Council Approves 1st Facade Application

Fremont Town Hall • Fremont, IN

(FREMONT) - The Fremont Town Council accepted its first downtown facade improvement application on Tuesday night under a program which started in March. Town Manager Chris Snyder said it was from Judge Martha Hagerty for her building on West Toledo. Snyder said Hagerty wanted to replace seven windows and that a committee felt the application met the requirements of the grant.

The Facade Improvement matching grant program is designed to stimulate efforts to improve the street appearance of Fremont's commercial and business facades. The program is funded by the Town of Fremont and $25,000 is available during fiscal year 2014. Grants are not to exceed $5,000.

In other business, the Town Council gave town attorney Kurt Bachman permission to pursue having the town take over property which was earlier donated to Fremont School District. The land was set aside for the Fremont Vocational Building Trades program before it was dissolved.

Bachman says everything is in order but there were a couple of hiccups. He said the closing has to take place by October 9th as back taxes are due by that time which could complicate the transaction. The Council also agreed to have a survey done on the property.
