City council expected to debate Wal-Mart today

As I write this I'm actually watching the city council proceedings online at the city clerk website.

Another item to share is this video from CBS2 highlighting the positive about the city's only Wal-Mart in the Austin community.

 That Wal-Mart is expected to be 24 hrs in the near future and average wages there is $11.77. One business owner says that this area is now considered safer because he operated his business during days when it was more crime ridden.

Found that second video via Carpe Diem!

UPDATE 1:06 PM The City Council appears to be discussing Wal-Mart right now! Also here's a link from Illinois Review about the Wal-Mart issue. This issue once again is being discussed in terms of the state race for Governor.
