PUBLIC SAFETY SUMMER CAMPS TO HELP YOUTH IN THE COMMUNITY
April 27, 2016 - Mayor Tom Henry today announced the City of Fort Wayne is partnering with Bridge of Grace Compassionate Ministries Center to provide public safety camps for local children.
This is the second year for the camps designed to teach the importance of public safety, character development, strengthening relationships between youth and police officers and firefighters, and education. Additional activities will include field trips, sports, games, and daily reading time.
April 26, 2016 - My administration and City Council tonight took an important step forward to demonstrate our commitment to ensuring Fort Wayne is a jobs and quality of life leader.
The introduction of the fiscal plan for the North IV annexation is the first step in the process to continue the growth and positive momentum being experienced in our City.
It’s vital for cities to grow, and the annexation proposal would provide our community with a tremendous opportunity to thrive and succeed. This is about sustaining our entire City – every resident – every quadrant – every neighborhood as a place where businesses, individuals and families want to invest and live.
