Fort Wayne City Council okays Legacy committee

The Fort Wayne City Council discusses a new committee aimed at deciding how Legacy money is distributed.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)- The Fort Wayne City Council put its stamp of approval on a new committee to oversee the city’s Legacy Fund Tuesday evening.

The committee will have nine members. The mayor will select three members of his administration as well as someone from the general public to serve on the committee.

Three members of the council will serve on the committee and the council will select a member from the general public as well.

Those eight members will then select a final member from the general public to complete the nine-member committee.

The committee will be in charge of selecting which proposals should be forwarded to the city council to be given serious consideration for the awarding of Legacy money.

The Legacy money -more than $75 million total for community enhancement- is coming to Fort Wayne as the result of its light lease settlement with Indiana Michigan Power in 2010.
