Growth vs. preservation

Thursday night, the city of Glencoe’s Planning and Industrial Commission turned down a proposed preliminary plat for Phase II of Glenview Estates. Monday night, the City Council upheld that recommendation on a 3-2 vote.
The planning commission’s vote was unanimous; the City Council’s was a split vote. At both Thursday night’s planning commission hearing and Monday’s council meeting, there was a desire to both promote housing in Glencoe and to allay the concerns of neighbors in the area where the proposed plat was to take place.

Korson is newest full-time police officer for city of Glencoe

At the Sept. 5 Glencoe City Council meeting, Brianna Korson of Stewart was sworn in by Mayor Randy Wilson as a full-time officer for the Glencoe Police Department.
Korson is replacing Officer Craig Losure, who retired from the department on Sept. 10 after 18 years of service. She comes highly recommended by Police Chief Jim Raiter, who believes Korson will be a solid officer for the Glencoe Police Department and a good fit for the citizens of Glencoe.
