Wenona grew, ward didn't, time for a change

Voters say yes to at-large city council

WENONA — Wenona residents said OK to electing their city council members at-large rather than only voting for men and women running for alderman in their neighborhoods.

Over the years, Wenona grew geographically, but the ward in the middle of the city did not grow with it. It had become more and more difficult to find candidates in the small, central ward.

On the Marshall County portion of town, 92 voters said yes and 44 said no to electing aldermen at-large. No La Salle County votes were cast on the referendum.
