Councilman Jehl statement regarding new Fort Wayne trash collection plan

The following was released on Tuesday, June 25, 2019:

For 18 months, Fort Wayne has had issues with trash collection services. Today, Mayor Henry rolled out a new plan to help address the issue but having specific city departments assist in missed collections. Said Councilman Jehl, “I am grateful the Mayor has taken the clothespin off his nose. The garbage issue cannot be fixed without his engagement.” 

For context, Councilman Jehl sent a letter to the Henry Administration on September 18, 2018 asking why it had yet not invoked the self-cure clause of the Red River contract, which is what is being proposed with today’s news conference.
