City adds site to utility meetings

The city of Fort Wayne has added another public meeting to those scheduled about its efforts to acquire Aqua Indiana’s water utility in southwest Fort Wayne.

Residents will be able to ask questions and obtain information at meetings throughout the community.

The additional meeting is set for 4 to 7 p.m. Monday at the Allen County Public Library-Pontiac Branch, 2215 S. Hanna St.

The other meetings, which are free and open to the public, are scheduled for:

•11 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, Allen County Public Library-Aboite Branch, 5630 Coventry Lane

•7 p.m. Wednesday, Southwest Area Partnership, Fort Wayne Sport Club, 3102 Ardmore Ave.

•10 a.m.-1 p.m. Thursday, Allen County Public Library, 900 Library Plaza

•6:30 p.m. Thursday, Northwest Area Partnership, Northridge Baptist Church, 1300 E. Cook Road

In November, Mayor Tom Henry announced that the city would begin a condemnation process against Aqua’s water utility.

A public hearing on the measure is scheduled for the City Council meeting at 5:30 p.m. Jan. 22 at Citizens Square.

City officials contend they can provide better quality water at lower prices; Aqua officials contend they provide high-quality water at adequate pressures.
