9 By Mike Lakin Mt. Pulaski water bills have been estimated for January, February, and March. With many water meters in pits, snow in January and snow and ice in February made the meter pits inaccessible on the day P IO O Ol the meters were to be read. In March, the electric reader bat- tery went dead and it took sev- eral days for the new battery to arrive in City Hail. So March water bills were estimated. If all goes well on meter reading day in April, your April bill will be properly corrected for any over estimation from January, Febru- ary, and March. Governor Rauner has frozen park district grants all over Illi- nois. The freeze included the Mt. Pulaski Township Park Dis- trict grant on the work on the swimming pool. Remember, Mt. Pulasl i Township Park District voters approved by 570 to 256 a bid for $595,000 in bonds "to renovate and repair the East Park pool, demolish the bath house and build and equip a new bath house," according to the ballot that was passed in 2014. The grant, now frozen, would have reduced the amount of bonds needed. The work on the swimming pool can go for- ward based on the 2014 vote, even without the state grant.

The flags are made entirely in the U.S.A, from weaving the material to embroidering the stars. Good to see a U.S.A. flag can be bought that doesn't have a made in China sticker on it.
