FORT WAYNE, Indiana (WANE) – At Tuesday’s Fort Wayne City Council meeting, council members introduced a resolution to discuss Greater Fort Wayne Inc.’s 2023 budget.
The budget, which will be finalized at the next meeting, would grant Greater Fort Wayne $375,000 to conduct economic development, business development and talent acquisition services.
The City Council typically allocates $250,000 each year to Greater Fort Wayne to provide community leadership in four key areas:
- Support and celebrate local businesses
- Developing an inclusive workforce and leadership for the next generation
- Improving the quality and competitiveness of the community
- Attracting new business, talent and capital
The proposal’s other $125,000 would help help Greater Fort Wayne market the community for economic development investment.
Greater Fort Wayne will subcontract with the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership to fulfill the items specified under the other $125,000.
The next City Council meeting is scheduled for January 24th.
