MAYOR GRAHAM RICHARD

Details

As the year comes to an end, I would like to take this opportunity to highlight the progress my administration has made in street, curb and sidewalk improvements in the Waynedale area.

Since 2000, the City has invested more than $5 million in street repair and resurfacing and curb and sidewalk replacement in the fourth Council district. Major projects in that time have included: Engle/Ardmore, the Broadway viaduct and Covington Road in 2000, the Freeman-Taylor intersection, Sandpoint Road...

THE VOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP

The holiday season is usually a time for joy, celebration, and thankfulness for our blessings. I believe it is also a time of charity and goodwill - a time to remember the people in our community who have little or no income and struggle to provide basic necessities, not to mention Christmas gifts for their children. We at Wayne Township are doing what we can to help make this Christmas a happier holiday for our clients.

Every year, we adopt about thirty families in need and, through our...

COUNCILMAN’S CORNER

Details

First, a few words about taxes. As we near the new year of 2003 there's no question that we're entering a period of great uncertainty about exactly how much property tax each of us will be paying in the future. Changes in other taxes passed by the state legislature will have an impact on property taxes. As you are probably well aware by now the Indiana sales tax went up from 5 to 6 % on December 1st. That's an unfortunate development that hits hardest those least able to pay but this...

It is that time of the year when the City of Fort Wayne's Street Department turns its focus from leaf pickup to snow removal. While we hope for a mild winter, we have already seen a few days where snow has dusted the ground. Fortunately, our street crews are better prepared than ever to deal with snow and ice when it impacts the City's roadways.

This year, the City will be divided into 16 snow routes, four more than last year. In addition, the Street Department has 17 new trucks, five new...

THE VOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP

The holiday season is upon us once again, which is a reminder for me to slow down and appreciate the many blessings in my life. As I look back over the past year, I think about how wonderful people have been to me, and how great it has been to provide much-needed help to members of our community. When I think of my greatest experiences and successes I've had as your trustee, I know it is because of the people who were involved one way or another.

Perhaps my most rewarding moments were...

FROM THE DESK OF SENATOR DAVID LONG

Details

It's 10PM on a Saturday night, and I'm writing this article. Another exciting evening in the life of the Longs, you say? Well, it was actually quite fun. My 15 year old son is over visiting his 16 year old girlfriend (boy, does that take getting used to), so my wife and I took our 10 year old son out to see the new Harry Potter movie, and then had dinner with him. Funny how the older you get, the more you appreciate nights like this. Family has never seemed more important. This is especially...
