Warning Siren Tests
If you hear a siren this week, don’t be alarmed. The City of Naperville will be performing maintenance on its outdoor warning sirens throughout the week. The work will involve activating each of the 25 tornado sirens individually during the times of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Maintenance work will be complete by Friday.
Downtown Holiday Lights
Naperville City Council will discuss adding an additional $50,000 to its holiday lights program Downtown Naperville, which would bring the total spending close to $250,000. The extra funding would pay to wrap the Riverwalk’s covered bridge in lights as well as wrapping the lights around tree branches as opposed to a “canopy style” arrangement. The city may also be switching to longer-lasting LED lights. The lights usually stay up until Daylight Saving Time begins.
DuPage County Mental Health Grant
The DuPage County Health Department received a $471,000 grant that will help people with substance abuse problems or suffering from mental illness stay out of the criminal justice system. The Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Program will provide support to about 700 people with assistance from the county sheriff’s office.
