The people of Fishers, Indiana received the go-ahead last week to be able to vote on whether to make the Town of Fishers an official City! Being considered Indiana's largest community to still be classified as a town under Indiana Law, last week marked the official first step in possibly becoming a city.
With the population in the Town of Fishers increasing every year, it is no wonder we are at this crossroad. The Town was recently ranked number 8 on Money Magazine's yearly list of the country's Best Places to Live for 2010. They also ranked number 10 in 2008. With the shopping, restaurants, and people that make up the town, it is easy to see why people are flocking to become residents of Fishers. Although back in 1998 voters decided to keep Fishers a town, this time around, with the population more than doubled, it may be the perfect time for voters to vote differently.
What do the voters vote on?
The voters will be voting on two questions....First, do they support making Fishers a city? Second, do they want to unite Fall Creek Township and Fishers together forming a modified second class city. This second question is the expected problem area for voters. If indeed the voters approve both questions, the outcome would be expanding the current seven member Town Council into a nine member. Out of the nine member council, one member would be appointed as the Mayor. If in fact the voters decide to vote yes to Fishers becoming a city, but NO to unity with Fall Creek Township, the town would then become a traditional city with a Mayor who is elected by the people.
How will this affect Fishers?
This will no doubt affect the population of Fishers. Fall Creek Township's population would merge with Fishers which would no doubt extremely raise the total popluation. It is unsure exactly how the voters will respond to the two questions at hand. How will you vote? Do you want Fishers to become an official city of Indiana?
