(LAGRANGE) - The LaGrange Town Board expressed interest in acquiring the parking lot next to the alley behind the Post Office during their meeting Tuesday.
Town Manager Mark Eagleson says Farmers State Bank reached out to him to see if the town would be interested in taking over the lot. Eagleson says there would be several positives if this happened. One of which is it would give the town a bigger footprint to work in.
Eagleson says a primary reason for the town to take over the property would be to improve the safety on U.S. 20.
The Board gave Eagleson permission to explore the possibility with the bank.
Eagleson told the Board the town will receive a mural courtesy of a project by the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership.
He has to submit three potential locations for the mural and is currently talking with building owners about the process.
