Memorial to Astroworld victims

Neuqua Valley High School is hosting a memorial service for Franco Patino and Jacob Jurinek. The school’s two graduates were killed in the Astroworld tragedy that struck November 5th. Patino, 21, and Jurinek, 20, had come to the Houston event as a pre-party for Jurinek’s upcoming birthday. The commemoration will take place on Friday, November 26th, at 5 p.m. in front of the main school building.

NESPA / D203 Preliminary Contractual Agreement

The Naperville School District 203 and the Naperville Educational Support Professionals Association (NESPA) have reached a tentative agreement for a new contract. The union, which has around 600 members, has been negotiating with District 203 since May. The union’s main demand is higher wages. NESPA includes support staff such as assistant teachers, special education teachers, campus supervisors, and health technicians. District 203 said additional information regarding the agreement will be disclosed pending ratification by NESPA and approval by the education committee.

Extra safety precautions for the parade

In light of the recent tragedy at a Waukesha parade, Naperville Police will take extra precautions to secure the route of the 2021 Lights Parade on Friday. In the incident, a man drove an SUV through the crowd, killing five and injuring more than 40 others. The NPD says it will have extra staff at the Friday event to keep the public safe. The Parade of Lights is hosted by the Rotary Club of Naperville and begins at 7 p.m. in downtown Naperville.

Budget workshop in Naperville

After hours of discussion and three workshops, the members and staff of Naperville City Council finalized the budget process for 2022. No changes were made to the proposal, which is $ 540.49 million and is balanced. Council members seemed divided on whether to hire an advisor to assist with the city’s budget review process. Some officials supported a staffing review which they believe will help determine whether the city is adequately staffed. A proposal to increase funding for city beautification from $ 100,000 to $ 250,000 also met with some support from councilors. The city council is expected to deliberate on the budget at its December 7th session when a public hearing is held.

Additional sheet holder

The city of Naperville added an additional cycle for collecting leaves on the roadside. The additional collection takes place from November 29th to December 4th. Residents are asked to rake leaves in front of their homes before 6 a.m. at the start of this collection cycle. The additional pickup is possible due to the lack of snow in our area, although officials say if it snows within the next two weeks the pickup may have to be canceled. This is because the equipment used to collect leaves is the same as that used to clear snow.

Naperville salute to return

The Naperville Salute organizers say the event will be held for the second time in 2022. Naperville Responds for Veterans announced that the festival on Rotary Hill will be held July 1-4 with live music, food and family fun, plus fireworks on the final evening.
