Coal Valley residents, you are invited to attend the village board of trustees meeting at 7 p.m. tonight. in the Municipal Building at 900 First St.
Come see how our village government works and meet the two people looking to be elected as our next village president (mayor). The election will be Tuesday, and our polling place has changed to New Hope Baptist Church on First St.

Our current Mayor, Stan Engstrom, is not seeking re-election.

Thank you, Stan, for your dedication and service to our community. I have served two separate five-year terms on the planning commission and zoning board of appeals. I was also elected as a trustee of the village and served on the board for two years.

Because of this participation I have firsthand knowledge of how our village government works. Now it is time to elect a new village president and I hope you join me in supporting write-in candidate, Emil Maslanka. Come to the meeting. Meet the candidates.

Make your decision and vote.

Anita L Hatalsky,
Coal Valley
