FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – The City Council will continue its discussion on the Eastbrook-Westbrook area of State Blvd, the Department of Child Services may see some changes, and County Councilman Paul Moss isn't out of hot water yet.

On Tuesday, Fort Wayne City Council members are expected to continue their discussions regarding the city's plans to make changes on State Boulevard west of Clinton Street in the Eastbrook-Westbrook area. City officials say the changes are needed for a new bridge and for safety reasons, but some neighbors fear it would increase traffic. The council will not vote up or down on the project, but some members want to influence a different government agency, the Northeast Indiana regional Coordinating Council, to make changes in its area transportation plan that could give the neighbors more say.

Also Tuesday, a legislative study commission in Indianapolis will meet and discuss language for bills to make changes in the state Department of Child Services. The commission is expected to target a state central hotline for reporting child abuse. Some child advocates and local officials say the centralized hotline has endangered children and prefer that suspected child abuse be reported locally.

And on Friday, the Allen County Ethics Commission is scheduled to conduct a public hearing on an ethics complaint filed against County Councilman Paul Moss in connection with a June 2 overnight traffic stop. An officer had planned to require Moss to take a Breathalyzer test but released the councilman after Moss called Sheriff Ken Fries.
