ELKHART COUNTY Council revises anti-nepotism policy

GOSHEN — The Elkhart County Council is now in compliance with Indiana’s anti-nepotism law.

The council revised policy Saturday that says government employees cannot directly supervise relatives including spouses, parents, children, siblings, nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, daughters- and sons-in law, step relatives and adopted family members.

Another part of the policy addresses contractual relationships between the county council and relatives. Council members cannot enter into a business contract with people related to themselves or members of the Elkhart County Commissioners without disclosure.

The county commissioners adopted the same policy earlier this month.

Manko has been cited for defying the town's new ban on street vendors, which he said is prompted by town councilors who don't think street vendors fit the town's image. Town officials said the ban was prompted by safety concerns. A court will now decide. (AP Photo/Jennifer McDermott)
