The Digest

2024 budget highlights


One big thing: Mayor Fadness’ vision for 2024 is here. Invest in teachers, lower taxes, spend some surplus, and re-start 141st/SR37 by April 🙌

Fishers has a large amount of “extra” cash. Most of this money came from Carmel’s excess income tax that gets sent to Fishers (sorry, Carmel!). The mayor wants to spend some of it rather than exist as a number on a screen. Here’s how:

Go deeper: Fadness said the number one issue shared via public polls is better walkability in Fishers. This means new pathways, restrooms, and updates where needed.

❤️ What wasn’t polled is the proposal for a 500k teachers grant. He asked that no government officials be a part of this board. Teachers only. Everyone loves this so far.
