The proposal by Fort Wayne to acquire Aqua Indiana's operations on the city's southwest side has been approved by the board of public works. The $67 million deal now heads to a city council public hearing early next month.
The full council could take a final vote on the proposal May 13.
The Journal Gazette in Fort Wayne says the deal also includes nearly $17 million paid by the city for the 2008 purchase of the water and sewer systems on the north side.
