Familiar face returns to helm



District 4 Representative Mark Boice has been elected president of the Noblesville Common Council for 2014.

“A lot of projects right now will shape our city in the next few years,” he said. “I’m excited to help lead the council and city through these projects.”

At the top of his list is working on design and the first steps to moving forward on a lot of parks projects.

“I’m really excited to be part of something that’s going to be a permanent fixture for Noblesville and such a great amenity for the city,” Boice said.

With the economy picking up, Boice said more developers will be coming in front of the council.

“The goal is trying to get the development that is good for the city and raise the standards of any of it (that is) not beneficial to the city,” he said.

Boice said Noblesville is positioned well with its finances and he hopes there are no revenue funding changes at the state level.

“As long as things stay the same we should be in good shape budget-wise this year,” he said.

Boice previously served as council president in 2011.

“I think it will be easier the second time around,” he said. “I know what to expect and hopefully can anticipate the needs.”

“Mark has served as council president before and will do another great job in that role. I look forward to working with Mark and all of the council this year,” Mayor John Ditslear said.
