MISHAWAKA, Ind. - Before the state of the city address, the Mishawaka council had some business to take care of.

They unanimously approved boundaries for utility and sewer service.
There was some controversy surrounding the issue.

South Bend and Mishawaka have long had a 'gentleman's agreement', saying neither would go after areas of future growth for the other city.

A couple weeks ago, South Bend introduced an ordinance that Mishawaka Mayor Dave Wood says would do just that.

Under the proposal, South Bend's utility boundaries would have extended to Capital Avenue, where Mishawaka has already invested money.

South Bend's council sent the proposed ordinance to committee because they wanted more discussion on the issue.

Mishawaka's service boundaries will extend four miles beyond the city limits, but follow the long-standing gentleman's agreement.
