Library Budget Increase Request
The Naperville Public Library is asking for a $599,000 increase in its 2018 budget. The library board approved the proposed budget last week, and now it must go through city council as part of the city’s budget process. Library Executive Director Julie Rothenfluh said the main reason for the increase is a decrease in revenues. If the budget increase is not approved library hours and staffing may be reduced.
Crime Stoppers Reward Offered
Naperville Crime Stoppers is offering up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of a man who stole two flat screen TVs from the Wal-Mart at 2552 W. 75th Street in the early morning hours of September 9. The same man has stolen televisions and computers from the same store before as well as 30 similar crimes at Wal-Marts across Illinois and Indiana over the last year and a half.
