Rick Fledderman was elected Administrative Resources association board of directors treasurer during the organization’s quarterly meeting Jan. 15 in Columbus. The association, which is owned by southern Indiana cities, provides assistance in the planning and financing of community and economic development projects.
“Mayor Fledderman’s election as an officer of the association is a reflection of the respect of his fellow mayors,” stated Eric Frey, ARa executive director.
The mayor revealed, “Over the years, ARa has helped Batesville develop programs and acquire funds to improve our downtown, community infrastructure and improve the quality of life of our community. ARa is an effective and efficient way for cities to work together, and I am pleased to have been selected to serve as an officer.”
Founded in 1973 with help from the Lilly Endowment, ARa helps cities better compete for community and economic development resources and comply with complex federal regulations.
