The Town of North Judson’s getting a new hand-held radar gun thanks to a grant from Kankakee Valley REMC’s Operation Round Up program. The program raises money for local causes by giving customers the option to have their electric bill rounded up to the next highest dollar, with that extra money going to the program.
North Judson Town Marshal Doug Vessely applied for the grant from Operation Round Up, and the town’s police department was awarded $689.99. Vessely told the North Judson Town Council about the grant during its meeting Monday.
Before the regular meeting, the council held a public hearing to present the town’s 2016 budget. There were no comments from the public. North Judson Clerk-Treasurer Donna Henry says there will be a second public hearing on the 2016 budget October 19 at 6:00 p.m., when the council decides whether to adopt the budget.
