Bill Connors

A Bettendorf alderman has announced his bid for re-election. In March, Bill Connors won a special election to fill the 3rd Ward seat after the death of Alderwoman Debe LaMar. Now, he is trying to win his second election this calendar year.

Some residents of Bettendorf can help fill a vacancy on the city council Tuesday. A special election will be held in the Third Ward to fill the unexpired term of Debe LaMar who died in November.

The city of Bettendorf wants to get tough with people who don't clear their sidewalks after it snows, but aldermen don't yet agree on how tough. Monday night, the city council discussed some proposed revisions in the current ordinance, but then tabled them.

Premiering Bettendorf

Sep 10, 2014

     The City of Bettendorf is asking residents for help with long-term planning. Tuesday, city staff will be on hand during an open house to discuss the initiative called, "Premiering Bettendorf."  The open house will focus on neighborhoods with potential for growth, such as the area from 53rd Street north to Interstate 80. Bettendorf officials want to know where residents would like streets and highways to be improved, and what kinds of amenities they want, such as parks and trails.
