In order to comply with Governor Holcomb’s “Roadmap to Safely Reopen Indiana” plan, the following City of Mishawaka facilities remain closed until further notice: Battell Community Center, all public restrooms, and all park playgrounds. Mishawaka Parks and the Mishawaka Riverwalk will remain open, and several Porta-Potties will be located along the Riverwalk for the convenience of those using the Riverwalk. Those using the Porta-Potties do so at their own risk.

Today I am announcing that the City of Mishawaka is moving forward with plans to re-open for business. Mishawaka is complying with Governor Holcomb’s stay at home orders and will continue to do so. If the Governor extends his order to shelter in place, Mishawaka will comply. Whether those orders expire on May 1, or in the near future, we are planning to get back to business in Mishawaka as soon as the Governor allows and we ask our citizens and businesses to prepare to do the same. That means, when the time comes, it will be up to each one of us to take appropriate precautions and decide for ourselves if we want to go out, open our businesses or patronize any business. We ask that you please give that thoughtful consideration and prepare accordingly.

Mayor Dave Wood and Street Commissioner Time Ryan have announced that trash pick-up will resume to normal in the City of Mishawaka. Over the last 30 days, Republic Services has realigned and reprioritized the collection routes for city residents. There was a “temporary” suspension of bulk and yard waste to ensure that Republic Service teams could effectively handle the extra trash that seemed to be accumulating in households.

The City of Mishawaka has created a program to assist residents with the removal of large bulk items under the current trash contract with Republic Services. This two-week program will begin on Monday, April 27, 2020 and run through Friday, May 8, 2020.
