JOLIET – Tasha the potbellied pig may be staying at the Flannery household in Joliet if proposed changes in the city's animal ordinance hold up.
The City Council Land Use and Legislative Committee sent new rules allowing potbellied pigs as pets to the full council for approval Monday.
JOLIET – A City Council committee gave a green light on Monday to expanding the inspector general of Joliet’s authority so he can investigate nonprofits and local governments that receive money from the city.
The proposal was shelved in April at a time when the city considered making inspector general oversight a condition of sending money to the Rialto Square Theatre. It is coming up again as the Rialto seeks $500,000 in a city budget to be approved in December.
The Rialto, however, was not mentioned Monday.
JOLIET – The Joliet City Council again will consider expanding the inspector general’s authority so that he can investigate the Rialto Square Theatre and other nonprofits that receive money from Joliet.

The Joliet City Council met Sept. 6 to approve a restaurant drive-thru permit.
JOLIET – The city of Joliet's proposed $281 million budget for 2017 got a relatively quick review this week after a lengthy debate over whether to spend $500,000 for the Rialto Square Theatre. The City Council plans to discuss the budget again at its Monday workshop meeting, which starts at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall.
Discussion of the Joliet city manager’s recommended budget for 2017 was the only item on the agenda at Thursday night’s special meeting of the Joliet City Council. Steve Peters, president of third-party management group VenuWorks, presented a proposal to the board seeking $500,000 on behalf of the Rialto Theater. This funding is $100,000 less than the city had given the Rialto in recent years and would be utilized for the maintenance of the theater as well as maximizing economic development through programming.
