Mayor says residents must sign new sewer contracts

ELKHART, Ind. -- Elkhart’s mayor held a press conference Friday to address the sewer issues between the city and the residents of Valley View.

The city wants the residents outside of the city to sign a new contract for sewer service. The city says any homeowner who doesn’t sign the new contract will be disconnected from the city’s sewer system.

Mayor Dick Moore made it very clear that the city is not willing to negotiate .

The mayor says that the reason this new contract has been drafted is because the old sewer agreement that was in place has expired.

He says that under this compact, valley view residents will pay a flat rate of $50 a month.

He said he doesn't see what all the fuss is about.

“I don't know if they expected us to draw a line and our police department meet up with their police department out on Valley View? I'm not quite sure. I'm not quite sure what that was all about. I heard about them protecting them. I said, ‘Protecting them from what?’” said Moore.

The mayor says that for the twenty or so people that have not signed the contract yet, they will need to do so soon.
