All local veterans are invited to attend a presentation by Rep. Bill Mitchell and the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
“Stand Up and Be Counted” will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 3, at the Mahomet American Legion Hall on Main Street.
Mahomet’s board of trustees welcomed a new member on Tuesday night, as discussion of the budget and next year’s slate of public works projects continued.
Mahomet resident Donald Lynn, who also serves as commander of American Legion Post 1015, was sworn in as the board’s newest member. His appointment fills the vacancy created by Patrick Brown’s election as mayor earlier this year.
The Village of Mahomet board of trustees recognized Village President Deb Braunig, whose term ended on Tuesday night, for her service to Mahomet.
Trustee Patrick Brown presented Braunig with a plaque honoring her eight years as mayor as well as her previous stint on the plan and zoning commission.
You'll find more extensive election coverage in Thursday's paper, but in the meantime, here's how the dust has settled:
Mahomet Village President
Mahomet voters opted for both stability and change on Tuesday, as they returned three incumbent village trustees to their seats but defeated the current village president in a decisive 78 percent to 22 percent vote.
The weather may still be cold, but local races are heating up in advance of the April 9 election.
Mahomet residents will have a chance to hear from candidates for village president, Village of Mahomet Board of Trustees, Mahomet-Seymour School Board and Cornbelt Fire Protection District Board of Trustees at an upcoming forum sponsored by the Mahomet Area Chamber of Commerce.
An error in the opt-out letters for Mahomet's electric aggregation initiative is causing confusion for some area residents.
Mark Fanning, manager of marketing and customer care for Homefield Energy, said that the first line of the letter sent to all electric customers within the village refers to the community as "Maryville" rather than "Mahomet."
From now until Saturday, Nov. 3, residents of Mahomet and beyond will have the opportunity to cast their votes early.
For the first time, offsite early voting will be available to Champaign County residents—in the past, early voters' only location for casting their ballots was at Brookens Administrative Center in Urbana.
After several handshakes and introductions, neighbors and residents got down to the business of discussing the future of Mahomet at a Community Planning Workshop hosted by the Village Tuesday night.
Though not officially designated yet as a Tree City USA, Mahomet is certainly a tree-filled community.
Therefore a recently appointed Tree Commission has been taking steps to gain Mahomet that special designation, as well as update the current ordinance and polices pertaining to tree maintenance, selection, and removal in the community.
Candidates in Tuesday's primary races turned out for a forum held by the Mahomet Area Chamber of Commerce on Thursday night, to answer questions and meet local residents.
Moderator Mike Kessel allowed candidates a brief introduction and then asked questions about the issues they were likely to face, if elected.
