Sara McGibanyThe next meeting of the group Greater Alton United takes place tonight (Tuesday), and the public is invited to not only offer input but to hear about what is going on in the community.  Greater Alton United is made up of a number of non-profit and social service groups that are looking at ways to improve the quality of life in the city.


Sara McGibany from Alton Main Street says it’s a great way for residents to stay in the loop.
