Letters To The Editor

Frager Feels

CRA Ordinance

Should Be Revisited

Editor:

After last Tuesday's Fairbury City Council meeting, I felt I should address some things that were changed when the Ordinance No. 3011 that was passed.

The ordinance was to change the current CRA (Community Redevelopment Authority), which was held by the city council, for the last 10 plus years, to an outside appointed committee by the mayor. The Ordinance had three readings (three different city council meetings) to allow comments by the public before voting. At the third reading before the vote was taken the city attorney presented a well done 30 minute slide presentation about how the CRA works.

Why not before the first reading?

Looking Back

120 YEARS AGO, 1891

The Fairbury Gazette

Livestock in the town were being penned up better, and the Methodist Church was able to remove the fence from around its building. A public subscription raised enough money to buy a whistle for the Fairbury waterworks, to indicate the times at 7 a.m., noon and 6 p.m. Nowadays, times for power plant whistle are 7 and 8 a.m., noon, 1,5 and 6 p.m. The late L.K. Cramb, former Journal editor, persuaded the end of the 6 a.m. signal some years ago.
