FREEPORT, ILLINOIS — The League of Women Voters of Freeport is hosting a public program on water resource management on Tuesday, February 26, at 6:30 p.m. at the Freeport Public Library. This topic should be of great interest to citizens of Illinois, including but not limited to such issues as lead levels in drinking water, water pollution prevention, and water conservation. The Forum is being co-sponsored by the Freeport Public Library Foundation.
The presenter for the evening is Beth Baranski, Jo Daviess County League of Women Voters Project Coordinator for water resource management efforts. She was involved in flood mitigation planning for northwest Illinois following the 1993 flood, as well as Jo Daviess County comprehensive planning, Jo Daviess Greenways and Trails planning, and various municipal planning and infrastructure projects in the area.
Baranski has used her architectural education, research, writing, and facilitation skills over the years to promote thoughtful development in northwest Illinois. She was Development Director for the City of Galena in the early 90s and later a partner in Notheis & Baranski Inc., a community development consulting firm specializing in planning and grant writing.
All voters and interested members of the public are invited.
