Regular Meeting Time: 4th Monday of the month at 7pm, Winnetka Convention Center
To take action to improve the public works and transportation in our community.
The representatives of the WNC care about all aspects of the lives of our stakeholders. All of our daily lives are impacted by the quality of our city’s infrastructure: our roads, water system, sewer systems, electrical system, and other systems that allow us to live the lives we enjoy.
This committee will hear and deal with issues relating to the infrastructure of our community and city. We hope that you’ll attend these committee meetings and join us in ensuring that Winnetka remains a wonderful place to live.
