Fort Wayne Mayor Unveils Budget Proposal
Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry has unveiled his proposed budget for 2018. It totals $165 million and will be formally presented to the Fort Wayne Common Council Monday.
Henry says the figures include nearly $30 million for neighborhoods roads, streets, sidewalks, alleys and bridges. It also includes 24 new police officers and 22 new firefighters. The proposal, he says, is balanced and "places an emphasis on public safety, neighborhood infrastructure and our award-winning Parks. Successful financial strategies assist us in our efforts to be a city that features a positive business climate, new jobs and thriving neighborhoods."
