Mayor’s door always open to everyone

Published: Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012 1:15 a.m. CST

In response to Julie Sutton’s comments on Sept. 27, where she made the statement that Rock Falls has a mayor who didn’t confer with council, the fact is that Mayor Blanton did, as he always does, ask all council members for their recommendations and input.

I, as well as other council members, did review all applications and gave our recommendation. We, as well as the city clerk, knew prior to the council meeting so the new council member could receive his council packet prior to the meeting.

The mayor is very open, not only to the elected officials but to anyone who asks. His door has always been open to everyone.

Note to readers – Alderman David Hand represents Ward 3.

No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
