City Council Meeting: 08/02/10

Steve SchaeferTonight's meeting was short; up first was a special award for resident and VFW leader Steve Schaefer.  Steve's humble attitude towards community service separates him from the pack.  I'm feel honored to have served with him on the Des Plaines Special Events Commission and I hope he will continue to stay involved.  He is truly an asset to this community.

Our National Nigh Out is scheduled for tomorrow, August 3rd.  Learn how you can get involved.

Subsidized by a FEMA grant, the Council approved the variance having heard the increase in flooding for the neighbors would be negligible in a 100yr flooding event.
