Plans to annex parts of Elkhart County moving forward


The City of Elkhart continues to move forward with efforts to annex parts of Elkhart County.

Residents and business owners who would be impacted by annexation were invited to an informational meeting Tuesday night.

City officials were on hand to answer questions and concerns. "In my one-on-one conversations, it's usually about money and would be for me if I lived in the county," said Elkhart City Engineer Mike Machlan. "And quite often, we can alleviate those fears."

Residents were also sent a copy of the annexation ordinance.

Official public hearings will be held in the coming months.

The city hopes to have the areas annexed on January 1st of 2015.
