Safety meeting planned for building housing migrant workers

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- South Bend Common Council members should learn what will happen to protect migrant farm workers staying in an old medical facility.

They're temporarily living in a 6-story building on West Western Avenue run by the Housing Authority of South Bend.

The issue is the facility lacks sprinklers, as required by city code. There’s a meeting planned for Tuesday night for the council to learn safety plans for the building.

The migrant workers do plan to stay there at least until next month.
