"My hands are tied," Mayor Melissa McGuire said Monday. "We can't find part-time police officers." The Mt. Jewett police coverage situation changed earlier this year after council voted 7-0 in December to set new guidelines for the police department. One of the new rules demotes the police chief from full-time to part-time status at no more than 39 hours per week. - See full article in the June 2 edition of The Kane Republican. MT.

"We've been pretty busy," local State Building Code Officer Russ Braun said Friday. "We're issuing quite a few new permits for new houses in Wetmore Township." He's also issued a building permit for the new Country Fair fuel station and convenience store on Biddle Street in Kane. United Refining of Warren is planning to erect the complex at an estimated cost of $300,000, Braun said. This figure does not include the cost of stormwater management work, sewage lines and underground fuel storage tanks, Braun said. About a decade ago, the state adopted the Uniform Construction Code, which affects most types of construction projects. Braun is the designated Building Code Official for Kane, Wetmore Township, Hamilton Township (Ludlow), Sergeant Township, Highland Township and Jones Township, including Lamont. - See full article in the May 30 edition of The Kane Republican.
