Nexus CEO Resigns
Mille Lacs News Staff Writer
At the special
meeting of the Onamia City Council this afternoon, Mayor Larry E. Milton
announced that Nexus CEO James D'Angelo has resigned. According to Milton,
the head of Nexus Inc. and Nexus Diversified Community Services will
conclude his tenure with the company at the end of December of this year.
For the past
several years, Jim D'Angelo was in charge of the Nexus corporation, which
operates four juvenile treatment centers; Mille Lacs Academy in Onamia and
the Gerard Academy in Austin, MN, as well as Indian Oaks Academy and Onarga
Academy in Illinois. Recently he was working towards building a new facility
on the Grosslein/Bye 38 acres in Bradbury Township, which was going to be
annexed by the City of Onamia in order to move approximately 94 sex
offenders from the Crosier Monastery where they are currently held.
As for the future
of Nexus in the Onamia community, everything is still up in the air, Milton
indicated. D'Angelo had stated that if Nexus did not receive property tax
exemption, they would indeed leave the area. It appears that whatever the
fate of Nexus, Mr. D'Angelo will soon no longer be in charge of it.
