Elementary schools saved, block scheduling stopped

That's the headline from the June 1 Brookfield East Special Edition of the Spartan Banner. Yes, it's a senior prank. A pretty good one, I have to admit. Find your favorite East student to get your hands on a copy.

Meetings the week starting June 20

It's the third week of the month, so there is a Common Council meeting on Tuesday. In addition there are several committee meetings. Unfortunately, the agenda is not on the City's website yet.
