Naperville aims to improve millennial appeal, technology in 2018

Naperville aims to improve millennial appeal, technology in 2018

Naperville officials are looking at ways to entice millennials to live and work in the city in 2018, an attempt to build on highly-ranked schools and the city's reputation as one of the best to raise a family.

In the upcoming year, city officials are expected to focus on workforce development by increasing the city's appeal to the younger generation and keeping the city's technology infrastructure up-to-date.

"I think that certainly we're going to continue to focus on economic development, which is always part of running a city that has reached its build out," said Naperville Mayor Steve Chirico. "You have to be creative. All mayors in this situation are working to do our jobs in different ways to keep our city moving forward so revenue doesn't dry up."

District 204 calls for end of Tuesday voting in some elections

District 204 calls for end of Tuesday voting in some elections

Indian Prairie School District 204 officials are questioning why Illinois' consolidated elections have to be scheduled on a Tuesday.

Like many school districts across the state, Indian Prairie beefed up its security to prevent the public from entering any portion of a school building where children are located until a person's identification is vetted through a criminal database.

Yet on an election day, anyone can enter polling places located in schools.

The Indian Prairie School Board is appealing to the Illinois Association of School Boards and its member districts to support state legislation to move consolidated elections from the first Tuesday in April to a weekend day.

DuPage County starts initiative to drop greenhouse gas emissions

In an effort to be cool and at the same time save a little green, the DuPage County Board Tuesday approved joining the Sierra Club's Cool Counties program.

The stated goal of the initiative is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the county by 10 percent by 2020 and 20 percent by 2030, based on 2007 levels.

In a press conference after the County Board meeting, County Board Chairman Dan Cronin noted the steps already taken by the county to reduce its carbon footprint, including building its own power plant, purchasing more than 30 alternative fuel vehicles, installing a green roof and retrofitting aged mechanical equipment.

Will County Heroin forum focuses on next steps in fight against drug's use

As politicians talked about the next move in the fight against heroin Friday, Alaina Malfeo stood in the back of the room by a memorial set up to victims of heroin overdoses.

Her brother Anthony was one who had fallen prey to the drug. He was 22 when he died of a heroin overdose in April 2014.

"It's so important for people to realize how bad the situation is ... whether it's Will County, Cook County or the surrounding area," said Malfeo, of Orland Park. "It could affect any family; it doesn't matter."
