I just read an article from Channel 13 news about Dixon city leaders who asked the public what they think the $40 million should be spent on.

The mayor used the words “we’re going to be.”

Correct me if I am wrong, but it is the City Council who failed to do its job, not “we.”

Why did they ask the residents if, at the end of the article, it says they [City Council] were going to decide? Yep, transparency. I do not think so.

What about people who work nights? Do we not have a word?

If there are any future meetings, they should be from 1 to 3 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. Give everyone a chance, City Council. We all have a voice.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
