By Joseph Lekarczyk

In the interest of full disclosure, let it be known that the author of this article is married to the Mayor.
The Lyons Board of Trustees (BOT) had a light agenda Tuesday night (they met on Tuesday because Monday was Labor Day), but they made up for it with a ninety minute workshop on the wastewater treatment plant upgrade.

Lyons Appreciates Their Firefighters

A large crowd of Lyons area residents where on hand at Oskar Blues last Saturday afternoon to show their appreciation and say thank you to the Lyons Fire Protection District volunteers and crew for all they do to protect us. The event was the kick-off of a statewide series of “Fight Fire with Beer, BBQ, and Music” celebrations. Lyons Mayor Julie Van Domelen was on hand to introduce and thank Fire Chief J.J. Hoffman, while everyone enjoyed some delicious brats, pulled pork, green bean casserole, and cold slaw supplied by Oskars. The local
