A Note of Thanks and Quick Reminder from Code Enforcement

Mishawaka's Code Enforcement Department would like to take this opportunity to thank those citizens who continue to maintain their sidewalks by regularly removing snow from them. Snow shoveling can be a chore however sidewalks are considered a public right-of-way and there are many people who utilize them. Snow accumulation on sidewalks is especially hazardous to children and the elderly.

Please be neighborly! Be mindful of your neighbors who may be elderly or physically unable to shovel their walks and drives. An act of kindness goes a long way.

Mayors Step in to Help Families in St. Joseph County

Christmas is a joyous time of year for many families, but for some, who have trouble paying their rent and utilities every month, it’s just a reminder of how bad things are. No money for a Christmas meal or coats and shoes for their children, let alone the toys they would like to buy. Year after year, this community steps in to help these families by donating to The Salvation Army Christmas Campaign.
