MENDOTA – The Mendota City Council handled a few items of business at its first meeting of 2018 on Jan. 2.
Reporting for alderman Jim Fitzpatrick in his absence, alderman Walt Weiland presented a request by Holy Cross School to hold its second annual Shamrock 5K run/walk on Saturday, March 10, using certain city streets. The request was approved.
