The Naperville Public Works Department wants you to adopt a drain. They’ve started a volunteer program throughout town inviting residents and businesses to commit to taking on the task of keeping nearby drains free of debris. Clogged storm drains are one of the major causes of roadway flooding in Naperville, and the city spends over a million dollars each year on maintenance, inspections and repairs of the nearly 56,000 drains around town. If you’d like to sign up for the Adopt-A-Drain progam, just head to the city’s website where you can choose a drain from the interactive map. http://www.naperville.il.us/residents/adopt-a-drain-program
SECA Begins Recommendation Process:
The SECA process has begun. Last night the Special Events and Cultural Amenities Commission met to come to their first unified recommendations for funding. This year they have just under $1 million to allocate, which includes about $51,000 from a new two percent escalator and underspent money from last year’s SECA allocations. They will meet again on October 27 to talk to applicants and further refine their allocations. Monies for SECA grants come from funds the city collects on its one percent tax on food and beverage.
New Safer Naper:
A new month means a new Safer Naper. Throughout October, the Naperville Police Department is turning its attention to crime prevention, and what residents can do to help keep them from becoming a victim. Simple strategies like locking your vehicle, keeping windows and doors of your home locked, and trimming shrubbery around your home so that windows are visible can make a difference in stopping you from becoming a burglary target. The department has also partnered with One Light Self-Defense to offer a women’s self-defense workshop at Safety Town on October 9. You can register online through the city’s website. http://www.naperville.il.us/services/naperville-police-department/community-education-and-crime-prevention/a-safer-naper/
