DUIs On The Decline
DUIs are on the decline in Naperville. In 2016, there were a total of 295 DUIs, averaging about 24 and a half per month. So far this year there have been 123, averaging about 17 and a half per month. At yesterday’s Liquor Commission meeting, Mayor Steve Chirico and other commissioners attributed some of this decline to the increased use of ridesharing programs and city regulations.
Pam Davis Sworn In
Also at yesterday’s Liquor Commission meeting, Pam Davis was sworn in as the newest liquor commissioner. Davis recently retired from Edward-Elmhurst Health after 28 years of leading the organization. Her appointment brings the total number of liquor commissioners up to eight.
