Town of Cicero
The town of Cicero held a regular board meeting on Wednesday Jan. 12 at the town hall.

The board also held public hearings for the proposed amendments to the town codes regarding parking in fire lanes and noise laws. The board unanimously voted to amend both codes.
The code regarding parking in fire lanes now states that "any person found to be in violation of this section shall be subject to a penalty of $100 for the first offense," $200 for a second offense and $300 for a third offense. The code regarding the noise laws now serves to "prevent unreasonable noise and to reduce unreasonable noise level within the town so as to preserve, protect and promote the public health, safety and welfare of the residents."
