Who said government can't be fun?
Park Ridge city council meetings may usually deal with prosaic matters like taxes and garbage pickup, but they're getting jazzed up for the holiday season.
At 6:30 p.m., prior to the start of the 7 p.m. City Council meetings on Dec. 3 and 17 at City Hall, 505 S. Butler, Park Ridge, local school bands will play holiday music.
The Maine East Jazz Band will provide 30 minutes of musical cheer on Dec. 3 and the Lincoln Middle School Jazz Band will do likewise on Dec. 17.
Light refreshments will be served, and meeting attendees are asked to bring a non-perishable canned food item to benefit the Maine Township Food pantry.
