Forum group to host mayor of Rock Falls

Published: Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

The Rock River Open Forum is happy to feature a discussion with Rock Falls Mayor Bill Wescott at 6 p.m. Thursday in the Rock Falls Public Library.

It is hoped that folks in our community will avail themselves of this fine opportunity to learn about our local government.

Bill has been asked to explain how decisions are made in our city. We would also like to explore ways that citizens can better become an active part of the process.  

We usually have spirited discussions. We believe that no one has all the answers, and that when we are respectful and listen to all views, we can reach productive solutions.

We believe also that the process of problem solving is usually more important than whatever solution is made.

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