City Council off Tuesday

DAVE GONG | The Journal Gazette

The Fort Wayne City Council will not meet next week, City Clerk Lana Keesling said Tuesday.

The council's Nov. 17 schedule called for a committee session, during which bills are discussed and given a preliminary vote. However, only three bills were introduced during Tuesday's meeting -- a consolidated sewer project contract, a building security contract for Citizens Square and approval of the annual budget for the Allen County Fort Wayne Capital Improvement Board.

A fourth bill, to reinstate collective bargaining for city employees, failed to receive enough votes to be introduced Tuesday and will not be discussed.

"Splitting that between the next two weeks, due to the lack of ordinances being introduced, we will have no meeting," Keesling said. 

Council will next meet on Nov. 24 in both committee and regular session to consider bills introduced this week. All of those bills will receive a final vote during that meeting.
