Additional Funds Denied:
Organizers for Christkindlmarket Naperville will have to find other means to help further fund their seasonal event in town. Their request for an additional $15,000 from the city’s SECA fund to staff more police at the event was denied by council at their meeting last night. However they will receive the original recommendation of about $45,000 from the city.

Also at the council meeting, the group proclaimed April as Autism Awareness Month in Naperville. And to celebrate, Turning Pointe Autism Foundation will host the grand opening of Turning Pointe Autism Foundation Boutique at 6:30 pm tonight. The new school spirit store is located within their school building off of Ogden Avenue and features merchandise like mugs, shirts and sweatshirts. The store will also serve as a training opportunity for Turning Pointe students. And the school will host community open houses every Thursday night in April.
