  • State of Indiana Announces New Initiative to Encourage Adults to Complete College Degrees

    February 16, 2016 No comments

    Effort supported by $7.5 million in state grants, incentives by colleges and employers

     

    Indianapolis – Governor Mike Pence and Commissioner for Higher Education Teresa Lubbers joined Indiana business and local government leaders today to kick off “You Can. Go Back.”— a coordinated campaign to help 750,000 Hoosier adults who have some college credit but no degree finish what they started. The statewide effort is a key strategy in reaching Indiana’s goal to increase the percentage of Hoosiers with education beyond high school to 60 percent by 2025.

     

    “There are 750,000 Hoosier adults who started working toward a degree or credential that will help them in their professional lives but for one reason or another, they had to put their education on hold,” said Governor Pence. “What we are doing here today is telling these Hoosiers, ‘We can help. And yes, you can go back.’ We want to improve the quality of our workforce, and help put Hoosiers on a path to even greater success. To achieve this goal, it is imperative that we look beyond our K-12 pipeline. Our ‘You Can. Go Back.’ campaign will encourage a continuing education that helps working Hoosiers meet the qualifications of the fastest growing, high-wage jobs that will provide opportunity and improve lives.”

     

    With support from state lawmakers and Indiana colleges, the Commission for Higher Education (CHE) is reaching out directly to prospective returning adults and easing their transition back to college with a variety of special programs and incentives, including $1,000 scholarships through a $7.5 million state grant, flexible class schedules and online courses, college credit for work and military experience, grade- and debt-forgiveness programs, and tuition discounts.

     

    “Many adults who started a degree or credential but didn’t finish have a strong desire to return to college, but they don’t know where to start,” CHE Commissioner Lubbers said. “You Can. Go Back. will guide students through the process of returning to school and give them the support they need to be successful.”

     

    This month, thousands of former college students will receive messages in their mailboxes and email inboxes highlighting the benefits of completing their degree and directing them to resources designed to support their return to school. At YouCanGoBack.org, Hoosiers will be matched to college programs based on their interests and career goals before being connected to dedicated “You Can. Go Back.” campus ambassadors at well-matched colleges.

     

    Indiana state leaders have called upon businesses and local communities as essential partners in the “You Can. Go Back.” campaign. Columbus Mayor Jim Lienhoop took part in today’s official campaign launch, highlighting the importance of postsecondary education to the economic vitality of cities and towns.

     

    “Approximately 20 percent of adults—about 35,000 people ages 25-64 in our southeast Indiana workforce region—have some college but no degree. Employers in our community are in desperate need of highly skilled people to fill jobs, especially in the advanced manufacturing and health care sectors, which makes up nearly 50 percent of our workforce,” Lienhoop said. “The City of Columbus strongly supports “You Can. Go Back.” because of its potential to help meet this workforce need.”

     

    As part of the “You Can. Go Back.” roll-out, CHE gathered input from Indiana businesses on what types of education benefits they currently offer employees and what challenges they face in providing or expanding those benefits. Comcast was the partnering business for the “You Can. Go Back.” announcement. The company already offers employees $5,750 in annual tuition reimbursement support, but Comcast is also working to expand education benefits.

     

    “The state is stepping up to make sure this opportunity exists for Hoosiers, but it is incumbent upon the businesses in Indiana to make sure that we provide a path that leads directly to a better educated workforce,” said Mike Wilson, Comcast Indiana Public Relations Director.

     

    As one of the largest employers in our state, Governor Pence has directed the State Personnel Department to share information about “You Can. Go Back.” with state employees. State agencies such as the Department of Workforce Development and the Family and Social Services Administration are helping publicize the effort across the state in local WorkOne and Division of Family Resources offices.

  • Republic Services Picks Indiana for Customer Resource Center, 450+ New Jobs

    February 15, 2016 No comments

    Republic-Stacked-logo_9_2009

    FISHERS, Ind. (Feb. 11, 2016) – Republic Services Inc. (NYSE: RSG), an industry leader in U.S. recycling and non-hazardous solid waste, announced plans today to establish a shared services center in Fishers, which will create up to 469 new jobs by 2025.  “When industry leaders like Republic Services consider where to grow, Indiana is at the top of the list,” said Governor Mike Pence. “Indiana’s national reputation as a leading state for doing business has helped the Hoosier State add more than 140,500 private sector jobs in the last three years, with nearly 60 percent of those jobs paying above the state’s average wage. Today, I’m proud to welcome Republic Services’ expansion as it furthers this trend with plans to add hundreds of quality, middle-management jobs to the Indiana economy, leveraging our state’s affordable business climate and our dedicated, skilled Hoosier workforce.” Republic Services, a Fortune 500 company, will invest $13.6 million to lease, renovate and equip a 68,000-square-foot class-A office space at 10194 Crosspoint Blvd. along the I-69 corporate corridor in Fishers. As noted during the company’s fourth quarter and full year 2015 earnings call today, the new facility is one of three Customer Resource Centers to be established throughout the country to enhance support for Republic’s 31,000 employees and 15 million customers across 39 states. The corporate office is expected to be operational by Sept. 1, 2016. “With the creation of the Republic Services Customer Resource Centers (CRCs), we are taking an important step toward transforming our customer experience and we believe Indiana is the right place to do just that,” said Joe Burkel, senior vice president of customer experience of Republic Services. “Placing our customers at the center of all we do is our top priority. The state-of-the-art Fishers CRC will bring advanced technologies and additional professional customer service jobs to the community, and will allow Republic to focus on delivering consistent and superior service to our valued customers.”  Republic Services currently employs more than 1,500 full-time professionals in Indiana. The company, which is committed to providing reliable and responsible recycling and waste disposal services, provides jobs for more than 31,000 employees, boasting the eighth largest vocational fleet in the United States and more than 160 environmental managers, engineers and scientists.  “Republic Services’ move to Fishers is very exciting and a testament to our commitment to bring good jobs to our community,” said Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness. “By locating in Concourse at Crosspoint along I-69, Republic Services has chosen an easily accessible, top-tier office space that will help attract a talented workforce and spur future development in the area. It is a perfect fit for an industry leader like Republic Services, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome them to the community.” Headquartered in Phoenix, Republic serves commercial, industrial, municipal and residential customers through 340 collection operations, 198 transfer stations, 189 active solid waste landfills, 60 recycling centers and more than 70 landfill gas and renewable energy projects.    The Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) offered Republic Services up to $4,500,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Fishers will offer additional incentives.  Today’s news is the latest in a string of economic development announcements in Hamilton County. Just yesterday, Braden Business Solutions, a technology solutions provider, announced plans to construct a new office in Fishers, creating up to 120 new high-wage jobs by 2020. And in January, Allied Solutions and Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) both announced plans to expand in Carmel, together creating an additional 684 new Hoosier jobs.  About Republic Services Republic Services, Inc. is an industry leader in U.S. recycling and non-hazardous solid waste.

  • Firewood permits available at Shakamak SP

    February 12, 2016 No comments

    images

    The public is invited to cut certain downed trees at Shakamak State Park for firewood starting Feb. 15 and ending April 1, 2016.

    Some trees that have died naturally and have been taken down by DNR staff or have blown down during storms will be available to cut and haul away for $10 per pickup truck load. The available trees are in designated roadside and public-use areas.

    A firewood permit must be obtained for each load at the park office between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.

    All revenue from these sales will be used for resource management and restoration efforts in the park, including the purchase and planting of replacement trees in campgrounds and picnic areas.

    Wood may be cut and removed between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information, call (812) 665-2158.

    Firewood cut at Shakamak State Park is for personal use only.

    The ban on transporting ash between Indiana counties is being removed because the emerald ash borer insect (EAB) is now widespread in the state. Regulatory tools and funding will be directed to other potential threats to forest resources.

    Rules for bringing firewood to DNR properties remain in place. The DNR does not recommend long-distance movement of firewood of any species due to the potential for moving other insect pests and tree diseases beyond locally impacted areas. “Long-distance movement” is moving beyond the immediate county or surrounding counties.

    Firewood purchased and brought onto any DNR property should be under a compliance agreement. Compliance agreements can be obtained by firewood vendors by contacting the DNR Division of Entomology & Plant Pathology at 1-866-NO EXOTIC (1-866-663-9684).

    Any ash firewood obtained at the property should be burned before spring (mid-April to early May at the latest) to help limit EAB movement within your home area. EAB larvae are generally dormant in the winter—living under the bark—and emerge in late spring as adult beetles. So, if the firewood is all gone, no EAB adults could emerge from the wood if the larvae are present. If you cannot use all the wood before spring (mid-April to early May), keep it completely covered while storing it.

    Shakamak State Park (stateparks.IN.gov/2969.htm) is at 6265 W. State Road 48, Jasonville, IN 47438.

  • $25 Million Hotel, Conference Center Project Coming to Plainfield

    February 12, 2016 No comments

    Plainfield_Embassy_Looking_East_lo-res

    DANVILLE, IN (February 11, 2016) –Today, the Hendricks County Tourism Commission in partnership with Sun Companies announced a multi-million-dollar agreement that will bring an Embassy Suites Hotel and Conference Center to Plainfield’s I-70 interchange just minutes from the Indianapolis International Airport.

    The project will be developed on land owned by the Tourism Commission at the intersection of Perry and Clarks Creek roads. The Commission has owned parcels with the intent to incentivize a hotel and conference center development since 2005, and this project will utilize more than 8 acres of that Plainfield property.

    “The Commission’s objective since we purchased the land over 10 years ago was to attract a project of this scope,” said Jaime Bohler Smith, executive director of Visit Hendricks County. “We couldn’t be more pleased with this agreement and its significance to the future of tourism in this county as it will be a major destination driver to our community.”

    The 175-room Embassy Suites hotel will have a minimum of 5,000 square feet of meeting space within the hotel, and another 20,000 square feet of conference space attached as well as a full-service restaurant and numerous other amenities. The project will employ nearly 50 people, and have an annual payroll of nearly $1.5 million. Construction is anticipated to begin no later than October 2016, with completion scheduled for 2018.

    “We’re thrilled to be bringing this level of hotel to Hendricks County,” said Suraj Patel, president of Sun Companies. “We have a 25-year history of working with communities across Indiana to bring the highest caliber of hospitality properties and help those communities continue to grow and attract businesses.”

    The Hendricks County Council today approved a preliminary resolution to set the deal in motion by offering a $6 million bond supported by the county’s innkeeper’s tax. The local 8 percent innkeeper’s tax is paid by visitors when they rent an overnight room in the county, and the funds currently support the operations of Visit Hendricks County, as well as county park developments and the county fairgrounds.

    The amount pledged to bond payments annually is approximately 20 percent of the total amount collected. Funds for the county parks and the county fairgrounds remain at the same commitment, which is also approximately 20 percent of the total amount collected. The $6 million reimbursement includes $5 million for the development of the conference center space and $1 million for the purchase and development of the land.

    Once operations begin in 2018, the hotel and conference center is expected to generate $6 million in room revenue and an additional $480,000 in innkeeper’s tax annually, according to Bharat Patel, chairman of Sun Companies

    “I-70 and Indiana 267 is the western gateway for Indy Metro, and since the relocation of the Indianapolis International Airport terminals, the interchange has become the primary lodging cluster for the airport but lacks an upscale, full-service hotel with sizeable banquet facilities,” Bharat Patel said. “This project will fulfill all of that by providing a facility with a quality restaurant, conference space and more.”

    In addition to the request from the county, officials in the Town of Plainfield are considering a request for a partial tax abatement of the hotel and conference center project over 10 years.

    “Our statistics and recent feasibility studies show that we need full-service lodging and attached meeting space to meet the growing demand of business travelers, especially with our proximity to the Indianapolis airport,” Smith said. “We are bringing in a new property tier, that we do not have anywhere in Hendricks County. This project will elevate all the properties, and make the destination sustainable over a longer period of time while further enhancing that interchange as a hospitality gateway here on the west side of the city.

    “The economic impact will be felt throughout our community in not only other hotels, but restaurants, shopping and locally owned businesses,” she added.

    Hendricks County continues to experience year-over-year growth with significant gains in lodging revenue including an increase of 3.9 percent in 2015 over 2014.

    About Sun Companies: Sun owns 32 hotels in 12 states including four Embassy Suites and has five hotels under development in New Jersey, Oklahoma and Kansas as well as a full-service hotel in Noblesville, Ind. CEO Bharat Patel received the 2008 and 2010 Hilton Hotels Developer of the Year for the Embassy Suites brand and 2009 Hilton Hotels Family Developer of the Year. Sun Companies is headquartered in Indianapolis.
