Not many times in recent history have I agreed with some of our politicians, but our mayor's recent column hit the nail on the head.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Indiana General Assembly adjourned for the year late Thursday night, ending a 10-week session dominated initially by the marriage amendment, but concluding with proposals to significantly improve the state's roads, preschool education, criminal code and other matters.
INDIANAPOLIS | Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. ran into a stone wall of indifference Wednesday before an Indiana Senate committee, as he fought to save his city's rental property registration and inspection program.
INDIANAPOLIS | It's not often you'll hear a Hoosier governor claim Indiana's business taxes should be more like those in Illinois.
LOWELL | An error at the county level could have undercut Lowell's assessed valuation by $40 million if it had gone undetected.
INDIANAPOLIS | State Sen. Earline Rogers, D-Gary, was unable to persuade the Senate Monday to let Gary, East Chicago, Hammond and Lake County keep a portion of their casino revenue that could be sent next year to the Northwest Indiana Regional Development Authority.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Northwest Indiana Regional Development Authority would get a $4 million budget bump under a plan to fix an income tax break aimed at Lake County's poorest homeowners but claimed by many more.
INDIANAPOLIS | Indiana schools and local governments will lose about a sixth of their total property tax revenues if Gov. Mike Pence succeeds in eliminating the business personal property tax.
CROWN POINT | An Indiana University professor says better money management by Lake County's big cities would help the suburbs, too.
INDIANAPOLIS | No matter how destitute or debt-laden, no Hoosier local governmental body can file for bankruptcy like Detroit did earlier this month.
INDIANAPOLIS | Griffith leaders were ecstatic Friday after Republican Gov. Mike Pence signed into law mandatory reductions in Calumet Township spending and a path for Griffith to exit the township if its excessive spending continues.
INDIANAPOLIS | Gov. Mike Pence has just two more days to decide the fate of two measures that could change Lake County forever.
CROWN POINT | A local pilot's spirits are soaring after Lake County officials expedited his property tax appeal and saved him more than $1,200.
INDIANAPOLIS | Legislation lifting the Lake County property tax levy freeze and providing new economic development opportunities for Gary is headed to the governor.
CROWN POINT | The Lake County commissioners' spring tax sale closed Thursday after raking in $3,046,500 during three days.
INDIANAPOLIS | Northwest Indiana's black state lawmakers want Gov. Mike Pence to veto legislation that would force Calumet Township to reduce its administrative spending and potentially enable Griffith to leave the township.
INDIANAPOLIS | It took six years of explaining, arguing and working around legislative roadblocks, but Griffith is now just a few pen strokes away from having a path to exit Calumet Township.
INDIANAPOLIS | The decision on whether the Lake County property tax levy freeze is lifted, even if the county doesn't enact an income tax, is now in the hands of state Sen. Ed Charbonneau, R-Valparaiso.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Indiana House has agreed to remove a state-imposed limit on the amount of property tax revenue local governments in Lake County can collect, regardless of whether the county enacts an income tax.
INDIANAPOLIS | Republican Gov. Mike Pence has signed 25 proposals approved by the General Assembly into law over the past two weeks, including six measures primarily sponsored by Northwest Indiana legislators.
