A committee tasked with addressing the consolidation of Howard County and Kokomo government has endorsed a proposal set down by Kokomo's mayor.
Government consolidation and the Indiana Treasurer's continuing battle over the Chrysler bankruptcy are on the table for Mayor Goodnight.

Mayor Greg Goodnight says Chrysler Corporation paying back $30 million it owes in property taxes over the next few years does not cover all the city's losses.
With the largest jobless rate in the country at one point and budget struggles throughout the year, Goodnight says Kokomo is slated for a better 2010 than 2009.
Greg Goodnight talks about a federal lawsuit filed against him and others, as well as giving his assessment of the city's annexation proceedings.
In exchange for about $1.8 million in economic development incentives, Zuna Infotech will hire Hoosiers to perform call center duties at its new headquarters.

Talks between Kokomo officials and Chrysler corporation appear stalled on the issue of the automaker's multi-million dollar property tax obligation to the city.
