The head of Alton Main Street is asking city residents to help save her organization. The city’s proposed budget does not include the $18,000 normally allocated for the organization.

She says community support is crucial to saving this program, and asks you to call your Alderman before the June 22nd committee meeting and attend the City Council meeting on Wednesday, June 24th at 7:30.
