|Not on Ballot|
| This measure did not or |
will not appear on a ballot
A Fishers City Incorporation Referendum measure was not on the May ballot in Hamilton County for residents in the town of Fishers.
This measure was not approved for the ballot.
A petition had been submitted to put this issue on the May ballot. The petitioners sought to make the town of Fisher a incorporated city. 1,443 valid signatures were needed in order to move the petition on to a vote, the group had collected more than 2,000. Once the signatures were validated then the issue would have been put to a vote.
Motivation behind becoming a city came from population growth, Fishers has approximately 70,000 residents and those pressing the issue say a town government is needed would work best. But the town council president dais it would rather mean higher taxes and bigger government spending.
The measure will appear on the general election ballot.
