WAKARUSA — A company that fabricates and assembles steel components hopes to relocate closer to the town of Wakarusa.

Southwest Welding LLC, located on S.R. 119 east of the town, wants to move less than five miles away to a lot on the north side of C.R. 42 just west of S.R. 19. The company plans to remove a farmhouse from the property at 28125 C.R. 42 and replace it with a new 15,000-square-foot building, which would be connected to the town’s sanitary sewer and water services.

The Elkhart County Plan Commission forwarded the company’s request Thursday, May 9, to the Wakarusa Town Council with a recommendation for approval.
