The Digest

Best of 2023 🏆️

2023 was a fun year. Here’s the top 3 best issues for your Sunday reads (based on your readership).

🥇 Report Cards are in

This issue was the number one issue of the 2023. And it was all due to one, tiny section:

Restaurant report cards.

In August, the Health Department announced that every restaurant in Fishers is required to show their inspection grade near their front door. Food trucks will be required to do the same by the end of next year. The city made a dashboard that allows anyone to track a restaurants grade. It also shows you the public report and why they received that grade.

🥈 Foil Hats Required

Foil Hats Required came in at a close second. This issue had more web views than the email itself did 🤯 Over the past few months, the City of Fishers has been revoking the permits for Verizon’s 5g tower deployments. The towers have been built in neighborhoods. And for whatever reason, Verizon went dark on their plans to continue. Even though most of their remaining permits have been revoked, they could get them again in the future.

🥉Sending the trashsignal

Third place goes to the trash issue. When Waste Management acquired Ray’s in 2022, everything went downhill. Fishers is moving into 2024 and there are still regular occurrences of entire neighborhoods with missed service, 100% rate increases, and more. Because of this, the City of Fishers is now looking into options for a city-managed trash service.

What do you think?

What were your favorite issues this year? There is a complete archive on both our website and here. I would love to know what you enjoyed the most and want to see more of in 2024.

#2 Safest City in America

fishers 2nd trophy

One big thing: Fishers is the #2 safest place to live in America.

Every year, MoneyGeek, SmartAsset, and more do studies on cities with populations over 100k. Fishers consistently ranks in the top 10 for cities when it comes to safety. And so do neighboring cities like Carmel and Noblesville.

The list for 2024 was no exception. When it comes to crime, only one other city in the country has a lower “crime cost per capita”. In simpler terms, this is the cost of crime divided by the amount of residents. For Fishers, that number is $296 per resident.

The Happenings

Weekend preview 🥂 – NYE edition

The countdown is officially on to 2024. Here’s the best guide you’ll find to doing New Years Eve today. And sorry, we can’t help you choose who you kiss tonight.

🎆 There are no public firework displays happening in Fishers (and Indy for that matter). So if you want to see some, that’s on you and your neighbors. Luckily, from 10 am today to 1 am — you’re allowed to fire off whatever you like!

For an alcohol-free party experience, Memento Zero Proof is hosting their “Death to 2023” cocktail party in downtown Fishers. Happens from 8 pm – 1 am.

The Glitter Gala is a disco-themed party at Daniel’s Vineyard to ring in 2024 dancing 🕺 If you went to their holiday pop-up bar, you know they do events right.

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is hosting their “Countdown to noon” for the kids you don’t want or plan on staying up till midnight.

Indiana Roof Ball Room will be hosting their 9th annual NYE party. They’ll have casino games, live music, multiple pop-up bars, tables to reserve, and much more. And hey, you can even get your palm read to see how your 2024 will go 🔮

colts NYE

The Colts host the Raiders at Lucas Oil Stadium @ 1 pm. The first 30,000 fans will receive a New Year’s Eve party pack with necklaces, glasses, and other fun accessories. This is a must win game to keep their playoff hopes alive.

None of these events your speed? Eventbrite has a great listing of other parties, dinners, paintings, and more to finish out the year.
