Dear
Utility Customers,We are writing
to
you
today
to
ask
for
your
patience as we
work through some
issues relating
tothe
agreements extraterritorial utility customers have with
the
City
of
Elkhart
(commonly referred
to
as"Compact Agreements"). These Compacts
were
implemented
in
1998
as
a way
to
level
the
playing field
between
businesses located inside
the
City
and
those
businesses
located
outside
the
City who benefit
from
receiving
some
City services. Changes
in
Indiana law
have recently
ledus
to
rethink how
we
shouldcharge extraterritorial utility
customers for those
City services
they are
provided.Recently, Representative Wesco introduced
an
amendment
to
a
House
bill which would
hinder
our
ability
to
offer services
outside
our
City. Working with
the Indiana
Association
of
Cities
and
Towns
and
State
Legislators,
the
Mayor offered
the
following option with
the
hope
that
the
Compact issue would
remain
a local issue
and be
resolved
here
at
home. The Mayor offered:
1)
to
ask
the
Common Council
to
suspend
all
action
related
to
the
compact,
and
the
Council
President agreed
to
do
so;
and
2)
establish a
bipartisan Task
Force
with
the intent
to
develop
an
ordinance proposal
that
would
be
equitable for
the
interested
parties. This
Task
Force will
be
comprised
of:
1)
two
membersfrom
the
Common Council,
onefrom
each party;
2)
two representatives
from
the
businesses
located
outside
of
the
city, one
of
which iscurrently receiving sewer services
under an
expired agreement,
and the
other business
is receiving sewerservice
under
a valid
compact
agreement;
3)
two representatives
from
businesses
located within
the
city;
4)
two
arealand
developers; 5) two
Elkhart
County elected officials;
6)two
City
of
Elkhart citizens; 7)
oneState
Representative currently
representing this
area;
and 8)
three members
of
the
City's utility
management
staff.
Our
commitment was made
contingent
upon
Representative Wesco withdrawing
that
amendment,
which
he has
done.
It
is
our
intention
to
fulfill
our
commitment.
