Council renews liquor license debate

The Fort Wayne City Council is expected again to consider a proposal to create a Downtown Dining District, which would make an unlimited number of liquor licenses available within the district.

The issue, which is championed by Greater Fort Wayne Inc., was tabled a few weeks ago because of a problem with the proposed ordinance.

Supporters, including some existing restaurant owners, suggest that creating the special district will help bring more restaurants downtown. Some restaurateurs oppose the plan because they had to pay much more for their own licenses. And some opponents argue that Fort Wayne should not use alcohol to attract people to the city center.

Feeding the hungry

Community Harvest Food Bank is celebrating 30 years of service to northeast Indiana.

During the hunger relief agency’s first year of operation, just after International Harvester closed, it provided 200,000 pounds of food to needy residents. This year, Community Harvest has distributed nearly 13 million pounds of food throughout the region.

To celebrate its achievements, Community Harvest has invited the public to an open house today.

Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-3rd, is also expected to make an appearance at the event.
