Sycamore to choose new alderman

SYCAMORE — Sycamore city officials will decide on appointing a new alderman to the city council on Monday.

Sycamore Mayor Ken Mundy has recommended Curtis Lang to serve as the First Ward Alderman along with First Ward Ald. Alan Bauer. 

The normally eight-member council was left vacant on July 15 after Gary Waight left his position to be closer with his family in DuPage County. The next alderman will finish the unexpired term through April 2015. 

Mundy had 60 days to find a candidate to fill the aldermanic seat since Waight left. 

Lang owns and runs Courtview Dental Center on State Street in downtown Sycamore. He previously served as a board member for Sycamore School District 427. He and his wife have three children who were raised in Sycamore and graduated from Sycamore High School. 

To qualify for candidacy, an alderman needs to have lived in the First Ward for a year. They must also be qualified to vote in Sycamore, not have tax debt or owe debt to the city and not have a felony conviction.

The First Ward exists in the eastern side of Sycamore and is considered the oldest area in the city. 

The city council will meet at 7 p.m. on Monday at 308 W. State Street.
