Mahomet goes for Trump

As the dust from the presidential election settled early Wednesday morning, pundits threw around words like “stunning,” “shocker” and “unprecedented.”

Many Mahomet voters—who backed the eventual winner—likely weren’t as surprised.

Census workers wanted

If you’re looking for part-time work this winter, the Village of Mahomet is looking for you.

Main Street development "fast-moving"

Few development sites have attracted as much attention—and speculation—in recent weeks as the properties at the corner of Main and Jefferson, across the street from Sangamon School.

Widener to seek full term in April

While the eyes of the nation are on November’s presidential election, there’s another vote on the horizon: the April 2017 consolidated election.

At that time, Mahomet voters will cast their ballots for village president and three of the six trustee positions. 

Website aims to attract commercial development

The target audience for choosemahomet.com, a new village website, isn’t local residents.

Instead, it’s an effort to provide information about Mahomet and the surrounding area to commercial developers looking to site businesses.

Speeds on 47 also going down

Drivers on Illinois 47 are slowing down thanks to some new speed limits imposed this month.

In mid-July, the speed limit on the stretch of highway that passes the Briarcliff and Thornewood neighborhoods on the north side of Mahomet was lowered. 

Speed limit lowered to 25

As summer draws to a close, drivers will have to move a little slower on many Mahomet streets.

Speed limits could be going down

 A proposal before the village board would lower the speed limit in residential areas of Mahomet by five miles per hour.

Trustees pass budget

After months of preparation and review, the board of trustees passed a budget for the Village of Mahomet on Tuesday night—a task that Acting Village President Sean Widener said is “probably the most important job we have” as elected officials.

Mahomet to hold partial census

Village leaders are hoping a special census will help enumerate Mahomet’s newest residents—and bring in some extra revenue.

On Tuesday night, members of the board of trustees gave their approval to a plan to hold a partial special census intended to find out how much Mahomet has grown since the federal census in 2010.
