Clendenin retiring as board secretary

Served four Board of Works chairmen

ANDERSON – After almost two decades of service as the secretary to the Anderson Board of Public Works, Jackie Clendenin is retiring.

The Board of Public Works on Tuesday announced that Clendenin’s retirement is effective on Monday. Chairman Pete Heuer said the board has not started the process of finding a new secretary.

Clendenin has worked for the city of Anderson for 27 years, starting at the Anderson Police Department for eight years and then 19 years as board secretary.

She served as secretary for four board chairmen. Clendenin was first hired for the position by former Mayor J. Mark Lawler.

“She has done a fabulous job,” Heuer said. “We hate to see you go.”

Board member Charles Jones said board members relied on Clendenin for a lot of information over the years and her assistance was valuable.

“People are people,” Clendenin said. “You do the best job you can for the people.”

In other business:

• The Board of Public Works took under advisement three bids for contract paving for the city of Anderson in 2014.

E&B Paving of Anderson submitted the lowest bid of $460,520. Milestone Contracting of Portland bid $542,471 and Rieth-Riley of Indianapolis submitted a bid of $613,901.

Previously Mike Spyers, Anderson city engineer, said the city planned to spend $700,000 on contract paving. The work will be paid for from Anderson’s share of the Madison County wheel tax.

• Board members also approved the final plat approval for a proposed three-story medical facility at the northwest corner of 32nd Street and Scatterfield Road.

Frank Owens, director of the Anderson Municipal Development Department, said the final plat approval included changes of the setback requirements on Scatterfield Road and 32nd Street.

He said the setback on 32nd Street was reduced from 60 feet to 30 feet and along Scatterfield Road from 75 feet to 30 feet.
