IMPORTANT! Information Regarding La Porte County Ordinace

The Board of Commissioners have been considering a Code Enforcement Ordinance, and have asked for public input. After reviewing all input, both positive and negative, the ordinance has been re-worked and the document that remains is being sent to the Plan Commission for their review and input, since that office will have ultimate authority on enforcement. Therefore, the proposed ordinance will NOT be discussed at the Commissioners meeting on Wednesday June 21. When the ordinance is returned to the Commissioners from the Plan Commission, further action will be considered.

The LaPorte County Commissioners have formally intervened and are opposed to NIPSCO’s proposed 11% electric rate increase. NIPSCO’s rates are already second highest in Indiana and their customer satisfaction rankings are among the lowest in the country, as ranked by J.D. Power & Associates.

Ratepayers are urged to write the State of Indiana to express their opposition to the rate hike by email at: or by fax to 317/232-5923 or by letter to the following address: Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor, Consumer Services Staff, 115 W. Washington Street, Suite 1500 South, Indianapolis, IN 46204. Written comments are being received until January 15, 2016.

LaPorte County was a key intervenor five years ago and helped block NIPSCO’s proposed 17% increase then. The Commissioners request the public’s help in providing written comments again to the state of Indiana on this proposed rate increase.
