Despite only lasting 50 minutes, the latest city council meeting was packed with decisions.
After months of discussion and an audit by the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund, holding city council office is no longer a pensionable position.
The group unanimously voted to remove council members from the pension program and to remove the language from the municipal code after more than four council members refused to sign an affidavit about hours worked.
“I think the best thing for the city right now is to put a stake in the heart of this issue,” said Councilman Joseph McElroy. “So we can move on with running the city.”
The Naperville Park District received the ok for a $17,500 Renewable Energy Grant for a new Nike Sports Complex Solar Energy System.
Council also voted to approve the 2015 through 2019 Capital Improvement plan, to allow ear piercing inside city limits, to publicly oppose a progressive income tax for Illinois, and authorized no more than $190,000 to be paid to snow removal contractors, bringing the season total to $763,000.
