IRONWOOD – At last nights Ironwood City Commission meeting commissioners welcomed back Andrew DiGiorgio as the director of Ironwood Public Safety. After the meeting DiGiorgio told the Daily Globe he was leaving his teaching position at Gogebic Community College to return to the position he left 18 months ago. He said his decision to quit teaching was not because he didn’t enjoy it, but because he realized he missed law enforcement. Digiorgio said his style of policing is more “non-traditional” and he would like to engage more with the community to receive input and help solve problems together. The commission also heard from Jackie Powers, director of the recent Sisu Ski Fest. She thanked the city, ABR Trails, the Sisu board, Public Safety Department and all the citizens for their help to make the race a success. In other business, the commission:—Approved the purchase of a new patrol car for $25,076.—Announced the retirement of Waste Water Authority Manager Mark Bowman.—Authorized bids for the Country Club Road watermain Project.—Approved an agreement with Coleman Engineering for the Ayer Street and Country Club Road, MDOT Small Urban Grant Project And —Identifed roughly 10 blighted properties which will be torn down in the spring.
