Statement From Mayor Tom Henry On Local Income Tax

Tonight’s vote by a majority of City Council members to adjust the local income tax to fund future phases of riverfront development and invest in neighborhood sidewalks and alleys is a win for our entire community.

It’s a next step to help ensure we continue to experience momentum with a thriving downtown, strong neighborhoods and a positive business climate with job growth and expansion projects as a point of destination city.

I applaud Councilmen Crawford, Didier, Freistroffer, Hines, Paddock and Barranda for demonstrating leadership in supporting a plan that will enhance our ability to move Fort Wayne forward in the right direction.
