Utilities Dispute hearing in Elkhart

Posted:

The ongoing sewer dispute in Elkhart was the focus of a council meeting tonight.
Business owners voiced their concerns about an ordinance that involves utility services.
The ordinance establishes the conditions and fees for providing services outside the boundaries of the city of Elkhart.
One business owner is holding off on expanding his business until the dispute is resolved.  He says the rates are too high.

"We bought this to stay free. Okay to save costs so we can pass it along to our customers," said a local business owner. "But that won't happen if we're going to pay $36,000 a year just to flush the toilets."

That owner would rather cut his losses than pay thousands in utility services.
