LAKE STATION | City officials remain focused on improving the quality of life for residents, Mayor Keith Soderquist said.
INDIANAPOLIS | Lowell, Winfield and similarly situated Indiana communities are one step closer to annexing their out-of-town water or wastewater treatment facilities without annexing the land in between.
LAKE STATION | Lake Station residents using city water are advised to follow a general boil water advisory until further notice, Mayor Keith Soderquist said.
