FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Fort Wayne City Utilities will hold its last public meeting Monday night to discuss the Federal Governments mandated sewer improvement progress.

The city is under a court order to reduce the number of combined sewer overflows going into the rivers.  The city also needs to reduce the amount of sewage that backs up into homes.

The meeting Monday night starts at 6:30 p.m. at Northrop High School.

The city has also added Open House events for residents to ask questions to staff members on their own time.

Open House Opportunities:

  • July 15 from 6 – 8 p.m. at Waynedale Library on 2200 Lower Huntington Rd
  • July 17 from 5 – 7 p.m. at Tecumseh Library on 1411 E. State Blvd.

 

City Utilities is a not for profit, municipally-owned, utility that does not receive property tax dollars. Ninety percent of the fees collected by City Utilities over the next five years will go into capital improvement projects — construction improvements to the sewer system that will help us meet Federal unfunded mandates and avoid fines and further sanctions. The remaining ten percent will go towards operations and maintenance costs.
