A forum for comments about Naperville news and issues.

February 2012 Archives

Mayor A. George Pradel gave his 17th annual address on the State of the City of Naperville and things, according to him, are in good shape.
Pradel cited things like redevelopment projects, an increase in income from local sales taxes and saving money on road salt and snow plowing, as things that are positive about the city.
"People are attracted to Naperville, because they get the best value for their tax dollar," he said.
The question is how do you feel about the state of the city? What's good? What needs improvement? What's bad?
