City of Elkhart votes to annex 4 of 5 county neighborhoods

There is zero information as to what neighborhoods we're talking about. Area 9, area 12, area 14 and area 15 mean nothing to the reader. These areas need to be defined - and since they're not the story raises more questions than it answers.


 


 


ELKHART, Ind. --

The four areas annexed are area 9, area 12, area 14, and area 15.
