The theme for this year’s address is “Mishawaka Strong”. Mayor Wood will highlight areas of fiscal responsibility, business and job growth, safe and cohesive neighborhoods as well as other ways in which the City is continuing to build a strong community for future generations.

Mayor Wood Announces New Appointments

Mishawaka Mayor David Wood is pleased to announce appointments to the Mishawaka Parks Board, the Mishawaka Plan Commission and the Mishawaka Board of Zoning Appeals.

Mayor Wood has appointed Tony Violi to the Park Board to fill the seat that Bill Pemberton vacated after being reassigned by Mayor Wood to the School City of Mishawaka School Board of Trustees.

Due to the snow over the weekend the Street Department has suspended leaf pick up until Wednesday November 25th to allow for some predicted warmer weather. If they are unable to resume this week, pick up will begin again the week of the 30th and complete as scheduled on December 4th.
