CAPRON, IL. (ECWd) -
During the January 11, 2022, village board meeting, the President of the village of Capron announced the Christmas party alcohol purchases were reimbursed to the village and apologized for the purchases.
Other members mentioned it was a community event (but "the community" was never invited).
A comment was made that it was to show appreciation to employees and other people (but employees get appreciated with their paychecks, and only one volunteer group was invited).
Finally, the "lots of other municipalities do this" comment is insufficient.
We applaud them for reimbursing the village and hope this never happens again.
