Verbatim: Statement from Mayor Tom Henry on passage of 2020 City of Fort Wayne budget

The following was released on Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2019:

Fort Wayne continues to move forward in a positive direction with momentum and excitement. I see it every day as I interact with residents, neighborhoods and business leaders. 

Tonight’s passage of the City of Fort Wayne budget for 2020 is an example of our community working together to help ensure we continue to support the essential services that city government provides to the public. In a bipartisan manner, we partnered to approve a budget that’s reflective of a city that’s positioned for current and future success. 

By investing in the major areas of neighborhood infrastructure, public safety and parks, we’re sending a strong message that Fort Wayne is a great place to live, work and play.
