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.

The beginning of 2003 has an extra special meaning, over and above the beginning of a New Year - it is the beginning of this administration's second term. Wayne Township would like to wish the outgoing board members success in their future endeavors. Furthermore, I'd like to welcome the newly elected board members to Wayne Township. They are Tamila Kelty, Timothy Burns, and Phil GiaQuinta.

Over the past four years, my administration has accomplished quite a bit. We were able to attain our...

Congrats to the Luers' Football team for a job well done in winning the state football title in their division!! What an effort!! Also a big pat on the back to the Snider and Dwenger football teams as well—all three of these teams have elevated Fort Wayne's football reputation to a new level. Good luck to Luers' and Elmhurst's and Wayne's as well as other high school men's and women's basketball teams—have a great season!

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.

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...
