Naperville’s Changing Numbers

At the latest City Council meeting, the group discussed cutting back the hours when commercial landscaping companies and contractors can operate.

They proposed dialing back weekend operating hours from 7 a.m. through 7 p.m. to 8 a.m. through 6 p.m.

Some council members agree the change would help avoid neighborly disputes.

“It’s a courtesy regulation and I realize that we don’t want to over-regulate our citizens, but at the same time, an ordinance like this can help with those courtesies between neighbors,” said Rebecca Boyd-Obarski, Councilwoman for the City of Naperville.

A vote is expected at the next meeting.

Another potential number change comes in the form of late night liquor permits.

Five new restaurants will come to town by way of the Water Street District, and each want a late night permit to serve alcohol after 11 p.m.

While the city currently has capped the late night permits at 19, most agreed they would welcome the increase because of the quality of restaurants coming to Naperville.

“It’s really, really exciting I think and you know, as long as these kinds of establishments keep coming, I’ll keep raising the cap,” said Kevin Gallaher, Councilman for the City of Naperville.

Council members will continue discussion at the next meeting on September 6th.
