[October 22, 2013]  The Lincoln & Logan County Development Partnership has announced the resignation of Brian Bergen, executive director. His resignation will be effective Oct. 25. Bergen will be taking a position with a civil engineering and architectural firm in Peoria.

"I have enjoyed working with the board and the people of Lincoln and Logan County," Bergen said. "I feel there is a lot of potential for the area. I think we made good progress over the past year, particularly opening the lines of communication with the city and county. The partnership is more closely aligned with the chamber and other local organizations. Channels have been opened with state and federal elected officials, progress has been made on the incubator project, Fifth Street is moving forward, and I believe there will be business growth in the area as inquiries continue to increase."

A news release from the development partnership said that Bergen worked hard to strengthen the partnership, overseeing a financial audit, the county's inclusion in the Central Economic Development Region, or CEDS, and the business incubator.

"Brian worked with all our partners and communities for all of Logan County," the announcement said.
