Freeport, Illinois – Good Luck to Jodi Miller as Freeport’s New Mayor!


The Freeport City Council will meet tonight at 6:00 p.m. at 314 W. Stephenson Street.  The real question is, will it be more of the same, or will there actually be a change of direction.   You cannot keep all of the people who implemented the failed policies of the past.  Some items of interest on the agenda:

Resolution to Enter into a Month-To-Month Lease for the Vacant Fire Station on South West Avenue with an Option to Purchase.

Ordinance appointing Police Chief, Todd Barkalow, to serve as the interim City Manager for the period of time commencing May 16, 2017 through May, 21, 2017.


Notice of Interim Appointments for up to 90 days by City Manager:

Guary Bernadelle – to serve as Finance Director

Alex Mills – to serve as Community Development Director

Todd Barkalow – to serve as Police Chief (Appointed himself police chief?)

Scott Miller – to serve as Fire Chief

Sosnowski Szeto, LLP – to serve as City Legal Counsel

Tom Dole – to serve as Public Works Director

Shaun Gallagher – to serve as City Engineer

Hopefully, some of these appointments will be temporary.  Changes are needed!
