COLUMBIA CITY â€” The Columbia City Common Council will hear the second reading of an ordinance creating a special fund that can make money available to local businesses for economic development-type improvements.
At tonightâ€™s regular meeting of the council, the ordinance establishing a â€śRevolving Loan Programâ€ť is likely to be one step closer to enactment.
Mayor Jim Fleck said last month the cityâ€™s redevelopment commission has funds earmarked for economic development.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” A group of local veterans of the second world war received long overdue recognition for having served during the conflict that called upon the â€śGreatest Generationâ€ť to give everything for world peace.
Robert Cornmesser, Robert Brock, both of Columbia City, and Fort Wayne resident Pauline â€śPollyâ€ť Bunyan, formerly of Columbia City, were whisked away to Washington, D.C. Nov. 10 as part of the fifth year of trips designed to take the nationâ€™s oldest war veterans to where their grateful nation has erected monuments in their honor.
