Tension over Elkhart’s new water/ sewer compact agreement with utility customers outside of city limits erupted over a new issue this weekend.

State Representative Tim Wesco changed course on state legislation. On Friday, he said he was leaning toward removing an amendment that would expand the definition of sewer fees and charges that could be appealed to the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission.

The Elkhart Truth reports that on Saturday, Wesco found out that Elkhart Mayor Dick Moore had no intention of ending a moratorium on new service agreements outside of city limits.

Wesco says he will keep the amendment in the state legislation, unless the mayor ends the moratorium.

Moore says the state bill infringes on city rights.
