Libertyville Village Board Meeting TONIGHT - Other News

Village Board Meeting TONIGHT @ 8pm

The Libertyville Village Board is set to meet tonight at 8pm at Libertyville Village Hall. After taking a look at tonight's agenda - there doesn't seem to be a lot of potential for fireworks, or very much excitement - but, two items on the agenda do stick out... (Here's a link to the agenda)

The first item being the recommendation of the Special Projects Committee regarding the Village's involvement in the future of the Brainerd Building. In recent months there has been a lot of momentum behind the Brainerd project - and the Village Board giving their official "stamp of approval" to the project will only further help fundraising for the effort, plus it will open the door to state and Federal grants. This is a win-win for everyone!

The second item of interest tonight will be the Village's vote regarding video gaming in the village. I don't know of anyone who thinks this is a good idea - I expect it to be an easy vote - but it will be fun to watch nonetheless.

The Village has a write-up on their website giving a background into tonight's video gaming vote: http://www.libertyville.com/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=157
