The South Bend City Council meeting was quick to dispense with the normal agenda but brought out some very valid points during council comments.
During the initial approval of previous minutes and consent agenda paying out over $64,000 one item stood out as the final $14,000 payment the city had to make in restitution for the fraud of Trisha Belcher in 2013.
The South Bend City Council met the night of Monday, August 9 for the regular bi-monthly city council meeting. After the council pledged allegiance, the council approved the consent agenda, paying out just over $170,500 in vendor checks and payroll, as well as the minutes from the previous meeting. Mayor Struck moved the meeting into the next segment by introducing a letter of congratulations from the Department of Ecology that recognizes that South Bend's Waste Water Treatment Plant has gone without any violations for the entire year of 2014.
During the South Bend City Council resident Tom Giacoma spoke out about the condition of Maple Street in South Bend and the increase of sewer rates.
"I have been paying taxes here for over 11 years," stated Giacoma, "I have been trying to have you guys (the City Council), finish the job."
