City Council Workshop
Last night Naperville City Council held a special workshop where council members received a presentation from K Hovnanian Homes. The developer is considering the purchase of 58 acres of the Nokia Campus to develop a new residential area and was seeking feedback from city council before beginning the planning process. Also discussed was the relationship between the City and the Naperville Heritage Society, the non-profit organization that runs the Naper Settlement. The City is looking to update its agreement with the Naperville Heritage Society, which was last amended in 1987.
Election Commission Sues
The DuPage County Election Commission plans to sue its vendor Liberty Systems LLC for the error made during last month’s primary election. Results of the election were delayed for hours after Liberty Systems provided the wrong ballot-like cards for the optical scan voting machines. Officials are still determining how much the error cost the commission in terms of overtime pay.

Snow, rain and cold cancelled the Cubs home opener and most of the local spring outdoor sports, but Naperville North and Neuqua Valley girls lacrosse would not let the elements keep these rivals from going head to head on the field. It took a while for the offenses to warm up, with the Huskies taking a 6 to 4 advantage after the first half of play, led by Lauren Platou. The Wildcats continued to hang around, always remaining within striking distance of the visitors. In the end, Naperville North was able to hang on for a hard fought 11 to 8 victory, giving the Huskies an early boost in the conference standings.
