Anderson leaders have little time for Wigwam deal

Posted: Updated:

ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) - City officials in Anderson don't have much time left to find a way to save the closed Wigwam gymnasium.

The city Redevelopment Commission approved a resolution Thursday to take ownership of the 9,000-seat gym from the Anderson school district, but only if it has a binding agreement by Sept. 2 with a group to reopen the Wigwam.

That's the deadline the school district has set for going ahead with plans for demolishing the gym it closed in 2011 as a cost-cutting move.

The Herald Bulletin reports (http://bit.ly/WmvjrJ ) commission member Kevin Sulc said he was frustrated that the private group Wigwam Sports & Entertainment back out of a deal for the gym after giving assurances it had the needed financing.
