COUNCILMAN’S CORNER

Details

Fort Wayne's city election campaign is in full swing as everyone is aware. So far the campaigns for city council and city clerk and mayor have been fairly civil. Hopefully that will continue to be the case. It appears to me that to date there's been a good discussion of the issues. As you know, Fort Wayne's municipal elections are now fairly close—Tuesday, Nov. 4th, to be exact. Don't forget to make sure you're registered to vote! If you would like a mail-in voter registration form or...

Public meetings have shown that one of the greatest needs in the City of Fort Wayne is assistance with home repairs.

MAYOR GRAHAM RICHARD

I would like to thank everyone who attended my recent series of Town Hall Budget Meetings. The information sessions attracted many residents in our community and led to some interesting and important discussions about the City's finances.

As you know, it is my priority to maintain a high level of City services without raising property taxes. I have been able to achieve that goal in each of the past four years. I recently submitted the City's 2004 budget to Fort Wayne City Council. Because...

The Evolution of Township Government

 

In 1894 the major role of Township Government was fence disputes, livestock replacement, and maintaining the public cemeteries as much as assisting those in need. Our Indiana fore fathers never envisioned the diverse and complex situations that affect townships today. We admire their wisdom in providing our system of local government capable of evolving to meet the needs of the people we serve as well or better than any other form of government. Just...
