Homes and businesses violating the city's sewer ordinance were in the spotlight at Tuesday night's Decatur City Council meeting.
Seeking to come into compliance with orders set forth by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) on separation of the storm and sanitary sewers, the city had smoke testing done to determine where violations are located.
