Voters in Fishers say their town has grown by leaps and bounds.
That's one of the very issues that's bringing voters out to the polls this Election Day. The two basic questions involve whether Fishers and Fall Creek Township should merge into a modern city and should the Town of Fishers alone become a city. Voters are deciding whether become a "second class city" with an elected council and mayor.
Fishers' population is currently about 80-thousand. The town has been dealing with quick and steady growth and officials have said for years that a "modern city" designation will help accommodate growth while also maintaining balance of power and minimizing corruption.
