Talk of the Town Hall

For the fourth time since taking office Lincoln Park Mayor Patricia Diaz-Krause hosted a Town Hall session to update residents on recent developments, share news and listen to concerns. Nearly a dozen attendees gathered Wednesday at Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 552 to ask about issues including trash removal service — the city recently changed providers — water bills and more. Bulletins from city hall included news that dogs will now be allowed on leashes in Council Point Park, the city’s website can now be translated to Spanish, and a dose of culture will hit town Sunday with the 5 p.m. presentation of “Italian Classics and Opera” by the Bellini Opera Theatre at the Kennedy Memorial Building, 3250 Ferris. For information on that event or other municipal events call 313-386-1800.
