Waynedale Politial Commentaries

What are your Waynedale (Fort Wayne), Indiana politicians working on for you? Local, regional and state wide politics can be found here written by your elected officials.

MAYOR GRAHAM RICHARD

Throughout my time as your Mayor, I have worked to run the City like a business. Providing excellent City services in a fiscally conservative way remains a top goal – one we are achieving. My commitment to sound financial management has created a $23 million cash reserve even in these difficult economic times.

The year ahead will be filled with even greater challenges. As we begin to prepare the 2004 City budget, I am asking for your help. In order to stay on this solid fiscal path and...

COUNCILMAN’S CORNER

It's the end of July and many residents of Waynedale are still in the process of cleaning up after the flood that hit the south side of Fort Wayne earlier this month. As I've said many times, only those who have had to suffer through a basement or living room full of mud (or worse) can really know what it's like to be the victim of a major flood. Recently I had the opportunity to meet with Belle Vista-Allendale Neighborhood representatives, other city officials, and Army Corps of Engineers...

THE VOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP

2003 has been a challenging year for clients and staff of the Wayne Township Trustees office.

I want all of Fort Wayne to know how the community...

As I write this column Allen County has just been declared a flood disaster area. That will offer some additional financial help to residents of Waynedale and the entire south side of Fort Wayne who were hit hard by the recent flooding. It was bad enough that torrential rainstorms dumped millions of gallons of water on Fort Wayne. Complicating the situation was the fact that Adams County was also a flood disaster area. Storm water headed up the swollen St. Mary's River and the overloaded...

I would first like to offer my deepest appreciation and thanks to everyone who volunteered their time, resources and energy to help the City respond to the recent flooding in Fort Wayne. Thousands of volunteers worked to save homes and businesses in our City and, thankfully, we had no deaths or serious injuries due to the flooding.

Due to the unique nature of this rainfall, the St. Marys River was affected in ways we have never before seen. I have visited much of the Waynedale area, which...
