Wake Up Tri-Counties Kewanee Mayor Gary Moore Discusses Tourism and Street Repairs with WKEI


The Mayor of Kewanee, Gary Moore joined Wake Up Tri-Counties on Tuesday, December 12th, 2023, to follow up on Monday’s Kewanee City Council Meeting. In our conversation, the Mayor discussed reservations that both he, and the rest of the Kewanee City Council share regarding plans for a new Henry County Tourism Bureau. The Kewanee City Council welcomed back Councilman Steve Faber on Monday night. Mr. Faber underwent a double lung transplant and returned to his place on the Kewanee City Council after six months away. The City of Kewanee is getting a new Fire Truck though it won’t be ready until the early part of 2025. Finally, the Mayor discussed plans for street repair in the City. Specifically, plans for a new sales tax that voters will be able  to vote on. If passed, it would create a period of 10 years in which a half cent sales tax will be imposed with proceeds from the sales tax going toward a street repair program for the City of Kewanee.
