Concerned Citizens of DeKalb County, or CCDC, hosted an informational meeting yesterday regarding the Michindoh Aquifer. Residents in the tri-state area are concerned about a plan to sell water from the aquifer to the Toledo suburbs. The Michindoh Aquifer, a portmanteau of the three states it touches; Michigan, Indiana and Ohio, is a prominent source of water for the corners of the three states.


Fort Wayne’s Office of Housing and Neighborhood Services received nearly $700,000 in state funds to help with lead paint remediation.

The city will partner with the Allen County Department of Health to identify children with elevated blood lead levels, and then help remove lead paint from their homes, homes where they attend daycare or homes where they visit frequently.
