Illinois Department of Corrections held in contempt …
A federal judge is holding the Illinois Department of Corrections in contempt of court after they failed to create a plan to improve healthcare conditions in prisons during the last four years.
Belvidere City Council voted to fill the Ida Public Library Board of Trustees Vacancy with Steve Pierce.
Belvidere Mayor Clinton Morris appointed Pierce. The mayor is in charge of making the appointment whenever there is an empty spot, which then goes to a vote.
