School Districts Oppose Arming Teachers
At last night’s District 204 School Board meeting members of the board addressed the issue of arming teachers. They discussed several proposals from the Illinois Association of School Boards, which included allowing school employees the option of carrying a legal, concealed firearm. The board and a representative from the Naperville chapter of Moms Demand Action were in opposition to the resolution. They will have a formal vote on IASB’s proposals at their next board meeting. The District 203 School Board voted against the resolution at their meeting last night.
New Parking Spaces at Metra Station
Tomorrow, 195 new daily fee parking spaces become available to commuters at the Water Tower West lot. In June, the city decided to demolish the former Public Works building on the lot to create the new spots, which will cost $2 per day.
Greene Farm Barn
This morning, community members gathered at the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County building as commissioners discussed what projects they would include in the forest preserve’s master plan certified project list. Many at the meeting wanted to see the Greene Farm Barn included in the master plan, however commissioners voted 3-3, meaning the barn would not be included. It could be included, however, in a future master plan.
