  1. Thanks for putting the thought into posting this. I’m finishing up my recommendation for the council and will recommend they review and consider this item. More later hectic weekend.

  2. Two additional points:

    1) The City of Sycamore appears not to have an in-house I&T department. They budget to contract out for computer repairs, upgrades, trouble-shooting, etc., and the budget for this year is $45,000 out of General Fund Support.

    2) County IM brings in revenues from a half-dozen different sources and to the tune of a projected $315,000 this year.

  3. Is City Barb going to take a stand on the petition drive to get the $45 million jail/courthouse expansion on the ballot for the voter to decide?I understand that Mr. Boies is leading this campaign.
