K-9 officer “Barry” is set to retire. He is one of four canines trained in narcotics detection and patrol. Barry has been recommended for retirement by the K-9 Unit’s primary veterinarian. Barry will be given to his handler, Officer Sam Ralph. He has served Fishers for eight years.

Public hearing for 2024 budget

Slide 22 of the budget proposal for 2024

One big thing: Tonight is your chance to give your thoughts on how Fishers uses your tax dollars.

There are certain ways the government can use its money. This isn’t really the case for the income tax money Fishers has been receiving from Carmel. This year’s proposal includes 12 million to make Fishers more walkable. Making 96th Street nicer. A teacher’s grant. And more.

Tonight is your opportunity to provide feedback to Fishers on how this money is used. If you’re camera shy, you can submit a public comment here by 12 today.

Rise n’ Roll sets sights North

Rise’n Roll Bakery is closing its downtown Indianapolis and Broad Ripple locations due to decreased downtown office workers. One franchisee is calling the move “tactical*.” The idea is to consolidate their locations into a smaller area. It seems the Fishers location is here to stay (their caramel cinnamon donuts are DIESEL) 🍩

Not so peaceful evening

Picture this: You’re settling down for the night after watching the Colts get their first victory of the season. Suddenly your evening is interrupted by a stolen car flying through your home. That’s sort of what happened to Joe Burnworth at his Fishers home. Read the story here*.
