Something very wrong here.

The Mayor forgives $115,000.00 in past due sewer bills to the RV Hall of Fame and tells them that he will reduce their future bills to $1800.00 to $2500.00 per month but the RV people are sure future bills would be more like $800.00 to $1000.00.  Just who did the RV Hall of Fame meet with.  The Mayor and what City Officials? Would that be Public Works and Utilities Officials?

The End.

In addition to this article, there was another today in that bigger paper to the west concerning the Hall that also painted a rosy picture for it's future. Both article's led me to believe the Hall is better positioned today, not because they've found the successful formula for positive revenue generation; but rather because they renegotiated their debt(s). Guess I'm saying it appears our community could and probably will be called upon to suppy more relief to this endevour for quite some time. When is enough?

While I believe in the RVHF it is a business and must make it's budget like the rest.  While the City is in it's own budget problems the mayor forgives the debt?  It's not his money to forgive nor is it allowed by law.

Do all compact agreement holders get to negotiate their bills to the City?

The $115,000 is yet another example of give aways, free services that the mayor has no lawful authority to waive.

What level of free services have been given away that we don't know about?

I have looked everywhere for the article about street closures and have found none.  Why is Waterfall Drive closed this morning.  Workers (4) from Building and Grounds Department were building a huge ramp for something in the street and also making big letters that look like 'Lerner'.   Workers said they are putting a garden in the street and that the road will be closed for a while.  Does anyone know what is going on down there? I am not sure but some I talked to say merchants downtown are unaware of the road closure and I don't think anyone has had advance notice.  Another well done job of the Mayors Office.  Don't tell and maybe no one will notice.

The great city of Elkhart can afford to give away money. Now they are going to give every tax paying citizen of the city of Elkhart free sewer with out charge.

ELKHART — The Flower Carpet of Mums, a vibrant display of more than 7,000 large mums, will feature “Mentoring Mums,” a program where mums will be sold to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Elkhart County and Pillars of Elkhart.

The one-of-a-kind display, which is a new extension of the Elkhart County Convention and Visitors Bureau Quilt Gardens, will cover 7,000 square feet on Waterfall Drive between High and Franklin streets.

While the display will be free to the public, the Lerner Theatre will be offering mums through tickets to some September performances. Tickets to purchase mums are available at the Big Brothers Big Sisters office, 59029 C.R. 13, Elkhart, and several downtown locations. Tickets will also be sold during the Downtown Elkhart ArtWalk on Sept. 26.

The display is made possible by a donation from the Elkhart County CVB and the work of the City of Elkhart buildings and grounds department.

Thank you both for the information.

I had seen the heading "Mentoring Mums program to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters and Pillars of Elkhart". I interpreted Mums to be a play on Moms thinking that Big Brothers and Big Sisters were going to mentor moms about something and since I have no interest in the matter I did not bother to read the article. I guess if I had interpreted Mums in the heading I probably would not have read the article because I have no interest in flowers.

Thank you again because your response of information was a lot more that the actual article.
