FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Tuesday night the Fort Wayne City Council approved a proposal that they say will “protect our rivers, support our neighborhoods and prepare the community for the future.”
The five-year plan will increase the sewage rates that a typical Fort Wayne resident would pay by about 5 percent a year. That means the typical sewer bill will grow from $43.64 in 2020 to $53.69 in 2024.

At Tuesday night’s council meeting, one council member suggested piloting the program for two years before fully committing to the five-year plan, however that was not approved.
The plan now goes to Mayor Tom Henry.
