Council seeks answers on Electric Works termination

Electric Works - Heather Starr/WOWO News

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The Fort Wayne City Council is hoping the city’s Redevelopment Commission can shed some light on what happened with the sudden termination of the public funding contract with the Electric Works project, and what happens next.

In a letter you can read below, eight of the nine Council members ask for more transparency on the process the Commission took to terminate the deal earlier this week, as well as whether or not the city will continue to work with RTM Ventures in the future or if there is a plan to recover public dollars spent so far.

The developer says they hope to continue working on the project.
