Winnebago County Leaders To Meet Saturday
County Board Member John Sweeney, a Republican, will meet with Rockford Alderman Karen Elyea, a Democrat, to discuss what committees may be needed to work together on the area’s hot button issues.
The two were co-chairs of meetings of various county and city officials to discuss issues such as high crime, housing, and lack of economic development.
Sweeney told WNIJ both the city and the county realize the importance of getting on the same page.
Saturday’s meeting is one of the first steps to come out of those recent discussions.
