Wastewater changes designed to better serve residents: Mayor
By Joseph Slacian
 
Changes will soon take place in the City of Wabash’s Wastewater Treatment Department to better serve local residents.
 
However, Wabash Mayor Scott Long is drawing criticism on social media for the changes. The criticism, he said, is based on inaccurate information circulating on Facebook and other outlets.
 
“Right now we have two people in wastewater billing,” Long told The Paper of Wabash County in an exclusive interview on Saturday, April 25. “If we have one person going on vacation, at some point during the day I have to require the other person taking bills to have a lunch hour, which requires us to close the office.”
