Election Results:

Election results are in. Naperville City Council will be welcoming Benny White as the first African-American to serve on the dais, along with incumbents Judy Brodhead, Kevin Coyne and John Krummen. In District 203, Kristen Fitzgerald holds on to her seat on the board for four more years, as does Donna Wandke and Charles Cush, with newcomer Paul Leong snagging the fourth four-year seat. The two-year seat goes to Kristine Gericke.

And over in District 204, newcomers Laurie Donahue and Susan Taylor-Demming join incumbents Cathy Piehl and Michael Raczak on the board.

Consolidation will be coming between the Lisle Township Road District and the Naperville Township Road District, as 55 percent voted to combine the 2 into a single unit of government.

Playground Plans:

Last night the Naperville Park District held an open forum at their Planning and Development Office to get community input on playground renovations planned for Pembroke Commons and Summerfield Lake. Some of the renovations proposed include new swings, monkey bars, and site amenities like picnic tables and recycling options. The renovations will begin this May, and should be completed in about eight weeks.

Metea/Neuqua Soccer:

Metea Valley girls soccer travelled south to Neuqua Valley for an early season DVC matchup. Both teams showed off their offensive firepower in the first half. Jade Eriksen-Russo scored twice for Metea, but the Wildcats tied it up thanks to goals from Haley Singer and Alyssa Bombacino. With just over five minutes left, Neuqua pulls ahead when Schylar Kingsley makes the slick move and powers a shot just over the head of Amy Ahern into the net. Wildcats hang on to win 3-2.
