Statement from Mayor Martin on the closure of Logansport city offices:

Franklin D. Roosevelt once said, “Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is education.”

As public officials, it is our duty to protect all citizens of our community, not just a political party or a specific group of people. As we continue to experience the effects of COVID-19, we are looking to our local and state professionals for guidance on what’s next.

What’s next for the City of Logansport is the closing of city offices beginning Thursday, July 30th until further notice.With the uptick of COVID-19 cases in Cass County, we will continue coordinating with government officials as well as medical professionals from state and county government on how to proceed.

City departments have been instructed to continue working their normal schedules until notified otherwise and we are continuing to coordinate with the governor’s office on whether or not we are going to see a regression of the “Indiana Back on Track” plan.
