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.”

Mayors from three counties along a northern Indiana river are calling for it to become just the fourth waterway recognized as an Indiana Scenic River.
 
The Eel River, a 110-mile tributary to the Wabash that stretches east from Logansport to Allen County through Miami, Wabash, Whitley and Allen counties, already has four canoe routes recommended on the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Web site. Ironically, the IDNR refers to the Eel as a “scenic river.” 
 
The mayors – Wabash Mayor Scott Long, Logansport Mayor Dave Kitchell and Peru Mayor Gabriel Greer – who made the announcement Friday at a Northern Indiana Mayors Roundtable in Plymouth, say the designation will only enhance tourism in their cities and counties.

Konyha delivers good, bad news for county
By Joseph Slacian
 
Of Indiana’s 92 counties, 54 are in absolute decline. Wabash County is among those in decline, according to Bill Konyha, former president and CEO of the Economic Development Group of Wabash County and current executive director of the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA).
 
“We’re in absolute decline because our population numbers are declining,” he told The Paper of Wabash County following a 30-minute address at the Wabash County Chamber of Commerce’s Business Before Hours on Wednesday, April 13. “The net of our inward and outward migration is not being made up with the differences between our births and deaths, we actually have more deaths than births.”
 
But the fact that the county is in absolute decline shouldn’t be seen as all doom and gloom.

Wabash City Mayor Scott Long proclaimed May 1-7 as the Elks National Youth week on Friday, April 22.
 
Long read the proclamation at the Wabash Elks Lodge No.471 on Friday to honor America’s junior citizens for their accomplishments and to give “fitting recognition of their services to community, state and nation.”
 
“Whereas, no event could be more deserving of our support and participation than one dedicated to these young people who represent the nation’s greatest resource,” Long said reading the proclamation, “and who in the years ahead will assume the responsibility for the advancement of our free society.”
