Peoria Council begins budget talks, Jensen sworn-in
“The district council people don't need to talk to me about the needs in the various districts, because I get it and I don’t disagree with you. I’m just saying because of the unique time we’re at right now, maybe get some information back on some of the particulars that several council members have asked questions on,” Ardis says.
The Council would then hash out what projects are a priority in 2014. The city faces a projected $3 million deficit next year. In other business, area attorney Beth Jensen was sworn-in to fill the remainder of Gary Sandberg’s at-large seat. Jensen is the third woman on the Council and previously worked in the city’s legal department.
