CHESTERTON | The Town Council heard from several department heads Tuesday during a meeting.

The Chesterton Police Department will be purchasing bullet-proof vests thanks to a recent grant, Police Chief Dave Cincoski told the Town Council.

The Police Department also received kudos from Westchester Intermediate School Principal Shawn Longacre, who submitted a letter to the council.

“The officers always attend our honor roll lock-ins. It’s wonderful to see the officers’ presence as they sing karaoke and interact with our students. Furthermore, during the school day, the officers routinely walk the hallways and visit our students during their lunchtime. Their presence, on behalf of our students, really makes a difference. I applaud them for their dedication and efforts,” the letter said.

Street Commissioner John Schnadeberg said Monday's rain caused a one-day delay in leaf pickups. He said his team will be putting in extra hours to get caught up.

Utilities Superintendent Terry Atherton said a groundbreaking celebration at the new Fritz Dietrich Plant is set for 10 a.m. Nov. 25.

Council member Jim Ton, a liaison for Dunes Kankakee Trail planning, said a meeting to review contractual obligations is set for Monday.

The council voted to reschedule its Dec. 23 meeting for 6 p.m. Dec. 16.
