It’s Finally Getting Warmer in Northwest Illinois! No Snow for Monday, April 7, So You All Can Make It to the Freeport City Council Meeting at 6:00 pm

20140406-194938.jpgThe Council will meet in the Council Chambers at 524 West Stephenson Street, 3rd Floor.
If you have Comcast Cable, go to channel 17 to watch live.

Items of Interest on the agenda:

Proclamation on Union Dairy Week June 16 – 22

Appointment of Shelly Griswold (former Community Development Director) to the Airport Commission – Wow – I was afraid Shelly was really leaving us, but everyone knows that the City needs her help! If she does as much for the Airport as she did for the City of Freeport, it means that the Airport will close down by the time her term expires. One thing for sure, the City better budget more money for the Airport!

Items of interest:

2nd reading of ordinance on litter caused by handbills and newspapers – It’s about time something was done about these unwanted papers.

1st reading of ordinance to extend date for implementation of rental ordinance to June 2, 2014. Rules will be suspended and this will be voted on at the meeting. See posting on March 13 in regard to this ordinance. The extension and general implementation issues remind one of Obamacare!
