For the first time in more than eight years it appears that Freeport has a fiscally responsible City Council. Unfortunately, the reckless spending during eight years of the Gaulrapp administration, which has continued for another two years under the leadership of Alderman Tom Klemm, has left the City of Freeport in a very difficult financial situation. Freeport has a lot in common with the State of Illinois – years of reckless spending and sweetheart deals with labor unions. If you have time tonight, go to the council meeting at 6:00 pm at 524 W. Stephenson Street, 3rd Floor, or you can watch it live on Comcast Channel 17. The agenda for the meeting is available at http://www.ci.freeport.il.us/citygovernment/Agendas/A20150615.pdf
