A incredibly hot housing industry in Freeport

At Monday night’s Metropolis Council conference, I experienced the honor of swearing in a new firefighter, George Strang. Welcome to the crew, George.

We also recognized staff who had considerable several years of assistance with the town. For August we recognized David Winnekins, general public performs, 35 decades, Christopher Lowery, Hearth Office, 15 many years and Justin Veer, general public operates, 5 decades. Thank you, David, Chris and Justin for your devotion to this community and serving our constituents effectively. We also regarded two promotions within just the police section with Bryan Politsch staying promoted to sergeant and Andrew Superior to the rank of corporal.

Council also handed an ordinance amending offenses relating to fallen buildings and vegetation. We’ve viewed numerous cases where by a single person’s house (i.e. a tree or garage) falls on to an adjacent residence, and the matter is left to be cleaned up by the adjacent operator. This revised ordinance now holds the residence operator whose tree or construction falls accountable for the cleanup. The ordinance provides extra enforcement ability to the community enhancement office to thoroughly clean up our neighborhoods of fallen constructions and vegetation.
