Gary council withdraws ordinances

September 7, 2009 (GARY, Ind.) The Gary common council withdrew two ordinances Tuesday night that would create two new city departments dedicated to memorializing the King of Pop.

One would work to establish a Michael Jackson Performing Arts Center and the other a Jackson Family Museum.

Mayor Rudy Clay supports the idea.

Council members didn't give a reason why they withdrew the ordinances at this time.
