Jeffersonville could see revenue bump

City UEZ director: Some businesses have not paid fee



Heritage Hardwoods, a Jeffersonville manufacturer of cut-to-size veneer, will add 14 new employees and spend $1.6 million on additional production space to add a new product line.

Steel Dynamics will update its Jeffersonville production line. The company will make a $5.7 million investment in machinery and equipment and an additional $2.1 million investment in other related costs. It will retain 98 jobs, with an annual payroll of $8.5 million.  



Jeffersonville Police Merit Commission President Dennis Henry presented 2012’s annual report and the budget for 2013 to the city council at its meeting Monday night.

According to the report handed out to the council, the police merit commission had a balance of more than $15,000 at the end of last year. Out of a total budgeted amount of $35,000, only $19,992 was spent. Moving into 2013, the police merit commission proposed the same budget of $35,000.

Henry also addressed some changes in rank that caused concern among the city’s administration last year, and also resulted in Henry’s removal from the board. Henry was reinstated less than a month later. The concern, he recounted, was that the changes in rank would cost the city “hundreds of thousands of dollars.” However, Henry said at the city council meeting the difference between sergeant’s pay and a lieutenant’s pay is about $2,200. For the four promotions the costs will increase about $10,000

“We did promote those four officers to lieutenant, we had one person that was promoted to sergeant,” he said of the changes in rank.

Henry said that in addition to the three applicants last year, the Jeffersonville Police Department is planning to hire another three officers this year. The officers will replace two officers set to retire this year, as well as a school resource officer the city has agreed to hire.
