Huntertown vs. Fort Wayne

UPDATE (5/9/16): A settlement agreement resolving all issues in this case received IURC approval on May 4, 2016.


In Cause No. 44519, the Town of Huntertown asked the IURC to: 1) Review the City of Fort Wayne's wholesale rates for sewage disposal service, and 2) Approve town ordinances allowing Huntertown to provide water and sewer utility service outside the town's corporate limits.

The IURC issued a May 20, 2015 order (68 pages): 1) Finding that Fort Wayne's wholesale sewer rates to Huntertown are unjust and unreasonable, and 2) Directing Huntertown to modify its regulatory ordinances. An additional order was issued on June 3, 2015.

Huntertown filed revised ordinances on June 1, 2015.


The OUCC filed more than 100 pages of consumer comments with the IURC to be included in the case's evidentiary record, after issuing an October 23, 2014 news release to invite comments. In addition, an IURC public field hearing was held in Allen County on November 3, 2014.

On March 6, 2015, the OUCC filed a response (11 pages) to the proposed orders filed by Huntertown and Fort Wayne.

Huntertown, Fort Wayne, and intervening parties submitted numerous filings in this case, which are available by visiting the IURC's electronic document system and entering cause number 44519.
