Allen County Board of Commissioners

A new committee will explore ways to improve efficiency and effectiveness in Allen County’s executive branch. The announcement was made Wednesday.

 

The formation of the committee comes just two days after voters decisively shot down a ballot proposal to restructure Allen County’s leadership. Supporters of the referendum claimed it would streamline decision-making and increase checks and balances.

Greater Fort Wayne Inc. was among those supporters. Its CEO Mark Becker, will serve on the new committee.
